Pakistan is planning to build an amusement park in the town of Abbottabad, notorious for being the site of Osama bin Laden’s death.
The amusement park and outdoor activity center is planned for the edge of the northwestern town and will begin construction in the next two weeks.
“This project has nothing to do with Osama bin Laden,” said Syed Aqil Shah, the provincial minister for tourism and sports, adding that the 50-acre development would also include restaurants, a heritage center and manmade waterfalls.
“The amusement city will be built on 50 acres in the first phase but later will be extended to 500 acres,” he told Agence France-Presse.
“We are working to promote tourism and amusement facilities in the whole province and this project is one of those facilities.”
