White Hot

The Financial Times reports:

Intelligence officers on the trail of Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader, said on Thursday the hunt was now “white hot” and had been narrowed down to a coastal strip close to Pakistan’s border with Iran. .... “What is clear is that the likelihood of picking up bin Laden this week, as opposed to last week, has soared,” a senior western intelligence source said. “Following the arrest of Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, bin Laden must now be concerned that Mohammed might decide to talk.”
