An American armed with a pistol and a one metre-long sword was detained in northern Pakistan and told investigators he was on a solo mission to kill Osama bin Laden, a police officer said on Tuesday.
The man was identified as 52-year-old Californian construction worker Gary Faulkner, said officer Mumtaz Ahmad Khan.
He was picked up in a forest in the Chitral region late on Sunday, he said.
"We initially laughed when he told us that he wanted to kill Osama bin Laden," said Khan. But he said when officers seized the pistol, the sword and night vision equipment that "our suspicion grew".
He was questioned on Tuesday by intelligence officials in Peshawar, the main north western city.
Faulkner told police he visited Pakistan seven times, and this was his third trip to Chitral.
Chitral is a remote, mountainous region close to the Afghan border. It is one of several rumoured hiding places for the al-Qaeda leader.
Well done America, once again the spawn of your land has brought me much amusement....
Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
