NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. judge Friday dismissed all criminal charges against Osama bin Laden following the al Qaeda leader's death in a military raid in Pakistan.

U.S. District Court judge Lewis Kaplan, who had been presiding over the bin Laden case in Manhattan federal court, issued an order called "nolle prosequi," which means do not prosecute in Latin, a typical legal move once a defendant is deceased.

The court filing included an affidavit by a senior U.S. Department of Justice official describing the U.S. military raid on bin Laden's hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May.
