ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan’s army threatened on Thursday to review cooperation with the United States if it conducted more raids like the one that killed Osama bin Laden.

“COAS made it clear that any similar action violating the sovereignty of Pakistan will warrant a review on the level of military/intelligence cooperation with the United States,” the army said in a statement, referring to Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Kayani.

It was the first comment from the army since the May 2 attack that killed bin Laden. The army said it would also conduct an investigation into intelligence failures to detect the world’s most wanted man on its soil.
