ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Afghanistan's ruling Taliban movement said on Thursday that Saudi-born dissident Osama bin Laden had told them he had no role in Tuesday's terror attacks in the United States.
``We asked from him, (and) he told (us) we don't have any hand in this action,'' Taliban ambassador to Pakistan Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef, told Reuters in an interview.
He said also that the hardline Islamic Taliban movement was prepared to cooperate with the United States in investigating those believed responsible for the devastating attacks.
``We are ready for any help according to (Islamic) Sharia law,'' Zaeef said. But he stressed that if Washington had any evidence against bin Laden, it should be provided to the Taliban, which has sheltered the dissident as a ``guest.''
