"PIA Thursday canceled the agency of a regular travel agent who had sent the airline a booking in the name of Osama bin Laden for the Karachi-Islamabad sector," the spokesman for the state-run airline told Reuters. A senior PIA official said Karachi-based Princely Travel, was delisted after the airline received information from its central reservation office that a passenger named Osama bin Laden was booked for Friday morning on a Karachi-Islamabad flight. "We don't know who the passenger is...Is he the prime suspect of attacks on the U.S. or not?...But the decision has been taken to ensure the safety of the airline," the official said. U.S. officials have named Saudi-born militant Osama bin Laden, who has been living in Afghanistan, as the prime suspect in last week's attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington in which thousands of people have died and are missing.
