Inside Bin Laden's Secret Hideaway

The fortified compound where Usama bin Laden was killed has been sealed off by Pakistani police after the Sunday raid by U.S. Navy SEALs. But photographs of the house help describe the conditions in which the former Al Qaeda head may have lived. GRAPHIC PHOTOS WARNING: Some of the photos recently obtained by Reuters reportedly taken an hour after the siege show bloodied bodies and are extremely graphic.
