Iran refuses to buy the U.S. version of eliminating the world’s most wanted terrorist Osama bin-Laden.

The country's Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi said Iran has reliable information that Bin Laden died of illness long before the Operation Geronimo on May 1.

“If the US military and intelligence apparatus have really arrested or killed bin Laden, why don’t they show him (his dead body) why have they thrown his corpse into the sea?” Moslehi asked, joining a chorus worldwide who wanted proof of the death of Osama.

Instead of providing a prof, the White House is trying to “overshadow a regional awakening” without any phot proof, he said.

US President Barack Obama had announced that al Qaeda chief Bin Laden was killed in his hideout in Abbottabad and the body was buried at sea keeping in mind the Muslim rituals.

Obama, however, refused to share the proof with the world saying the bloody pictures might create bigger controversy.
