Obama: US forces kill Osama Bin Laden

President Obama announced Sunday night that US forces had killed Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden at a location in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and taken possession of his remains.

He said a small team of US Special Forces had successfully attacked Bin Laden's compound in the town, which is close to Islamabad.

Referring to the Al-Qaeda attacks on the United States in September 11, 2001, President Obama said justice had been served, and vowed to continue the fight against the group and its affiliates.
