Islamabad: The Pakistani military 'didn't have very good contact' with US forces in Afghanistan for two days following the daring US commando raid in Abbottabad that killed Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, reports said.

Osama bin Laden was shot dead May 2 by crack US commandos who flew into Abbottabad onboard four stealth helicopters and stormed the hideout of the world's most wanted man.

“For two whole days after the raid, we didn`t have very good contact” with the Pakistani military, a daily quoted Maj Gen John Campbell, the commander of US troops in eastern Afghanistan, as saying in the US.

The media report said that lack of communication forced US soldiers to safeguard about 450 miles of border with Pakistan without support from the Pakistanis.

The general made the statement during a briefing with journalists at the Pentagon.
