Osama Bin Laden is DEAD

Osama Bin Laden has been killed by the U.S. military after a decade-long hunt to avenge the 9/11 attacks, President Barack Obama revealed today.

The leader of al Qaeda was dramatically killed yesterday in a firefight with American special forces in a $1million mansion hideout around 60 miles north of Islamabad in Pakistan.

Experts used facial recognition techniques to identify the slain leader and performed DNA tests, the results of which will be available in the coming days.

U.S. officials have reportedly told broadcaster CNN that bin Laden's body has already been buried at sea in order to prevent the grave from becoming a shrine for extremists.

In a dramatic statement late last night, President Obama said the U.S. military had recovered the body and confirmed to the world he had finally been killed.

‘Tonight I can report to the American people and the world that United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda and a terrorist who is responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women and children,’ he said.

‘Justice has been done’.

Within minutes of the news breaking Americans began gathering outside the White House to sing the national anthem and chant: ‘USA! USA!'

In a spontaneous outpouring of emotion, thousands started cheering and clapping and waving American flags to show their support.

But the terror chief's death will undoubtedly put the Middle East on high alert for reprisal attacks. It will also lead to urgent demands from Washington as to how the most wanted man was allowed to seek refuge in a supposedly allied country as Pakistan.

U.S. military sources revealed tonight that Bin Laden had been taken by surprise by the attack by a small team of U.S. Navy Seals who landed in the grounds of the compound.

During an operation in which troops were on the ground for just 40 minutes, they stormed the terror chief's hideaway.

In a dramatic finale, it is said that bin Laden was offered the chance to surrender. But the leader, who had always said he would not be captured alive, refused and was blasted in the head by troops.

Three of the terror leader's men, including his own son, were also killed along with a woman they tried to act as a human shield in a furious firefight.
