Using "actionable evidence" by a "US asset" the founder and leader of Al Queda, along with several family members was killed during a "ground operation" in a mansion outside Islamabad, Pakistan after the President gave the go-ahead to act on the intelligence.

Al Jazeera reports that officials in Afghanistan claim that bin Laden`s death is more of a "symbolic victory" as he "was no longer directly connected to [Al-Queda`s] field operations."

The President said that "justice has been done" and that bin Laden was continuing to plan attacks against the United States.
