Osama Bin Laden's Pakistan compound demolished

Pakistan has been demolishing the compound where US forces killed Osama Bin Laden, in the city of Abbottabad, residents and police say.

The al-Qaeda leader was shot dead at the compound in the north-western city near the capital Islamabad in May 2011.

Bulldozers arrived after dark to demolish the outer walls, and worked through the night.

There is heavy security around the compound, which served as Bin Laden's hideout for more than five years. Aleem Maqbool reports.
