Bin Laden, 54, noted for being the mastermind of the 9/11 attack in the US back in 2011, was dead as President Obama appeared at White House and made a statement on Sunday night.

According to Obama, Osama Bin Laden was killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan, as the body has been found and being held by the US, confirming that it was really Bin Laden.

Later, reports revealed that Osama Bin Laden’s body was buried at sea in an Islamic tradition.

Apparently, Bin Laden was noted as the founder of al-Qaeda and a notorious enemy of the state as former US President George W. Bush declared him as wanted, dead or alive.

Back in 2004, reports revealed that Osama bin Laden have announced admitting to be responsible for the 9/11 terror attack.
