The Facebook page for mass murderer Osama Bin Laden has been shut down.

After attracting more than 1,000 "fans"  and posting clips of his threatening videos and speeches produced by al Qaeda-affiliated Al-Sahab Media Group has been sent packing by the social networking site.

"People often attempt to register fake accounts under the name of famous or infamous people," a Facebook spokesman told ABC News.

"There is no evidence to suggest that the account in question or the other dozens of people who have tried to present themselves as Osama bin Laden have any relation to the terrorist," he said.

"As is our standard practice, we have disabled the account."

Facebook has access to emails and IP address associated with profiles or groups, assisting local and federal law enforcement if warranted.

Facebook declined to say if there would be any follow up by anti-terrorist agencies of the of  followers who signed up as Bin Laden’s "fans."
