Osama bin Laden killed in Pakistan

Posted:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the Sept. 11 attacks against the United States, is dead, and the U.S. is in possession of his body.

President Barack Obama said bin Laden was killed in a ground operation in Pakistan.  Officials have long believed bin Laden, the most wanted man in the world, was hiding a mountainous region along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. 

A jubilant crowd gathered outside the White House as word spread of bin Laden's death after a global manhunt that lasted nearly a decade.

"Justice has been done," the president said.
