Inside Osama Bin Laden's Pakistan hide-out

The White House is considering whether to publish photographs of Osama Bin Laden's body, to prove to the world he is dead.

The al-Qaeda leader was shot in the head and officials say they are concerned the images could be inflammatory.

In Pakistan the government has rejected suggestions it could not be trusted with information on the raid by US special forces that led to his killing.

The CIA said it did not share the intelligence in advance because it feared the secret mission would be jeopardised.
