THE DEATH OF Osama Bin Laden will this week see him removed from the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list.

For now, his mugshot still appears there, albeit with a ‘Deceased’ tag blazed in red along the bottom of the picture. He had been on the list of the world’s most wanted criminals since 1999 for his connection with the bombing of the US Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Kenya. Naturally, 9/11 copperfastened his place there.

However, while the FBI decides who to move up the list to take his place, there are still nine other highly dangerous criminals languishing in the Top Ten. You may not be so familiar with their names, with the exception of Irish-American James ‘Whitey’ Bulger, a notorious gangland figure who the Boston Herald said just last month was rumoured to have died in Costa Rica.
