A Japanese couple who lost a son in the September 11th, 2001 attacks says that Osama bin Laden's death is a turning point, even though they wanted to hear him tell the truth about the attacks in a court trial.
Kazusada and Mari Sumiyama's eldest son Yoichi, a 34-year-old bank employee, was killed in the attack on the World Trade Center in New York.
For the past 10 years, the parents have agonized over the loss of their son while also desperately wanting to know why the tragedy happened.
After hearing on Monday the news of Osama bin Laden's death, the couple said they feel that a turning point has
come at last. But they also said they had wanted bin Laden to be arrested and tried.
They said there is now no opportunity to hear him explain the truth in court. They added that they want the US government to clarify why the terrorist attacks occurred and to work to prevent a recurrence, so that their son's death is not in vain.
