Osama bin Laden, leader of al-Qaeda, mastermind of the September 11th terrorist attacks and the world’s most wanted man for almost a decade is dead, President Barack Obama is poised to announce. The President spoke to the 9/11 victims, at the end of his speech, “we have never forgotten your loss. We are all one nation under God indivisible , with liberty and justice for all. God Bless the United States of America.”
Mr Obama was due to address the United States and people across the globe shortly after 11pm local time on Sunday night from the East Room of the White House. He was expected to say that the Saudi-born Islamist had been killed by an American "asset" and that his body was in US custody in Afghanistan. Military sources said that bin Laden was killed in a mansion outside Islamabad along with other family members after “actionable intelligence” about his whereabouts was received. Two senior counter-terrorism officials confirmed that bin Laden was killed in Pakistan last week. One said bin Laden was killed in a ground operation, not by a Predator drone. A Pakistani intelligence official confirmed that the al-Qaeda leader had been killed in Pakistan.
