A total of 39% of all Bulgarians fully support the US raid that lead to the assassination of late Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, according to an international survey conducted by Gallup International Associational.

A further 42% have stated they do not back the US actions and would rather prefer to have seen the world's most wanted terrorist detained instead.

After surveying more than 17,000 respondents on each continent, in recent weeks, the poll suggested that over half of them broadly supported the killing of bin Laden, although an additional quarter would have preferred to see him detained.

Europeans, in particular, would have liked to have seen al-Qaeda's chief arrested and tried, rather than killed summarily: 50% of Finns, 45% of Italians and 42% of Russians preferred this option, while just 18% of Americans thought bin Laden's arrest would have been a better outcome than his being shot dead.
