    ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan (AP) - Under powerful floodlights and surrounded by rings of soldiers and police, heavy machines began Saturday night to demolish the three-story compound in northwestern Pakistan where Osama bin Laden lived for years and was killed by U.S. commandos last May.

    Each blow helped eliminate a concrete reminder of the painful and embarrassing chapter in Pakistan's history that the al-Qaida chief's discovery and death in a town not far from the nation's capital represented.

    Pakistan was outraged by the covert American raid in Abbottabadbecause it was not told about it beforehand - a decision the U.S. explained was driven by concerns that someone in the governmentmight tip off bin Laden.
