Washington, May 8 (PTI) Osama bin Laden's Abbottabad hideout was an "active command and control centre" of al-Qaeda, the US has said, releasing five videos of the slain terror kingpin seized during the daring raid on his compound in Pakistan that showed how he "jealously guarded" his image.

Bin Laden's Abbottabad compound was "an active command and control centre" for al-Qaeda's top leader. It is clear that he was not just a strategic thinker of the group. He was active in operational planning and driving tactical decisions inside al-Qaeda," a senior intelligence official said, giving an insight into the lifestyle and personality of the al-Qaeda chief.
