Osama bin Laden is dead: Obama

WRITTEN BY: V. Phani Kumar, MarketWatch

HONG KONG (MarketWatch) — Nearly a decade after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S., President Barack Obama announced late Sunday that Osama bin Laden has been killed in a U.S. operation he authorized in Pakistan.

“The United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda,” President Obama said in a televised address to the nation Sunday night.

“His demise should be welcomed by all who believe in peace and human dignity,” Obama said. He described bin Laden’s killing as the “most significant achievement to date” in the U.S. efforts to defeat Al Qaeda.

Obama said he determined last week that the U.S. had enough intelligence to proceed with the operation.

The operation to kill bin Laden was launched earlier Sunday in Pakistan’s Abbottabad, a two-hour drive to the north of capital Islamabad.

Bin Laden was killed after a firefight in which no Americans were harmed and U.S. forces took custody of bin Laden’s body, Obama said.
