The French exact their revenge.

Paris- Saudi intelligence services have determined that terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden died of typhoid in August, the French regional daily L'Est Republicain reported on its website on Saturday. The newspaper said it based its information on a document classified "defence secret" originating in the French DGSE intelligence services. According to the story, the DGSE informed President Jacques Chirac of the Saudi report on Thursday.
