EDIT CONTAINS 4:3 MATERIAL The sun rises on a different Abbottabad, Pakistan Tuesday morning... Some residents in the pristine resort town where Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. special forces say the death was undeserved. (SOUNDBITE) (Urdu) MOHAMMAD SHIRAZ, RESIDENT OF ABBOTABAD, SAYING: "Osama is just and right. The way America is terrorising Muslims, whatever in response they are doing is right. It (U.S) is targeting the whole Islamic world, economically or otherwise." This newspaper calls him the biggest rebellion against America... then asks if he's been martyred. Demonstrators took to the streets of Quetta Pakistan on Monday -- holding posters of bin Laden and chanting his praises. Long live Osama bin Laden, they sang. But as relations between the U.S. and Pakistan decline further, it remains to be seen whether their attitude will spread to the rest of the country or throughout the region. In nearby India, an artist sculpts an enormous likeness of bin Laden's face... not to memorialize the al Qaeda leader, he says, but to show, quote that all terrorists eventually face the end.
