Bin Laden's HIGH security compound: Marijuana plants grew near hideout as servants made trips for 'lots' of VERY western Coke and Pepsi

(UK Mail Online) - High-strength marijuana plants have been found just yards from the luxury home of slain terror chief Osama Bin Laden.

Hundreds of the exotic green flower have flourished for a number of years on the border of the war lord's secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Despite being a short walk from a military training academy dubbed 'Pakistan's Sandhurst', the illegal crop had remained undiscovered.


More details about Bin Laden's lifestyle came from local residents who spoke of their experience of living next to the world's most wanted terrorist.

A nearby shopkeeper said that two young men who lived inside the compound with Bin Laden made regular trips for bulk food orders.

The grocery basket included extensive supplies of Pepsi and Coke - U.S. brands that have become the face of western commercialism that Bin Laden claimed to despise.

The two lackeys called themselves Akbar and Rashid Khan and did the daily shopping in the Pashtu-language accents of Waziristan, a region on the Afghan border.

Grocer Anjum Qaisar, 27, who works 150 meters from the compound, said: 'Bin Laden’s men never came by foot, they always drove a Pajero or a little Suzuki van, and they bought enough food for ten people.'

Mr Qaisar said that he did not know who lived inside the building. 'I was curious about why they bought so much food, but I did not want to be rude by asking,' he told Bloomberg.
