German Newspaper Says Bin Laden Captured

Via Buzzflash: UPI in Berlin reports that Osama bin Laden has been captured:

BERLIN, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden has been captured, Germany's Die Welt newspaper reported Thursday. The newspaper, on its Web site, cited "unconfirmed reports" as the basis for its report.

Update: Maybe they were referring to the capture of Hassan Ghul:

Hassan Ghul, described as the most senior associate of Osama bin Laden found in Iraq, was picked up last week in the northern part of the country by Kurdish forces, the official said. "He was a senior facilitator who was caught coming into the country," the official said. Speculation was that Ghul, a Pakistani, was scouting out what al Qaeda could do in the future against U.S. forces, the official said.

Update: Thanks to commenter Jer who provides this link to The U.S. Denies It.
