Osama Bin Laden is dead after a raid by US special forces

Thousands have been outside the White House in the early hours of this morning celebrating the momentous news.  US Special Forces had carried out a successful raid at a property in Northern Pakistan, less than 100 miles from Islamabad. It was near a military academy.  There were no US casualties.

President Barack Obama announced the news of Bin Laden's death on television in Washington yesterday evening.  Former US presidents have sent their congratulations to President Obama and the US armed forces.

Bin Laden and his son were killed, and the special forces took the body of the terrorist away.   Images of a dead OBL have been put on hold, but they are expected to surface on the internet. Fresh terrorist activity and various reprisals, in response to this momentous event, are now expected. The US State Department is issuing warnings and travel advice.

OSB will be regarded as a martyr by Al Qaeda and supporters.  We live in dangerous times.

1 Peter 5:8.
