Video: President Barack Obama’s Statement Announcing Osama Bin Laden’s Death
President Barack Obama announced late Sunday night that US forces killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, 54, in Abbottabad, a small town two hours outside of the Pakistani capital of Islamabad earlier that day. Reports indicate that bin Laden’s body is in US custody and the remains will be dealt with in accordance with Islamic tradition. The role of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency is undefined as yet, although President Obama and top Pakistani intelligence officials said the allies cooperated in the attack that brought bin Laden down, nearly ten years after the Sept. 11 attacks.
