Photos of a deceased Usama bin Laden are expected to be shown to members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Fox has learned, though when is unclear.

"We hear they will be made available," Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., a panel member, told Fox.

Tara Andringa, spokeswoman to Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich., confirmed this.

"We expect committee members will be able to see them, but we don't know when," Andringa said.

Already, two GOP members of the panel have seen at least one photo, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire.

Ayotte said she would not describe the photo she saw as "gruesome," as many officials have said. "They looked like (bin Laden). I could identify him," the freshman senator told Fox.

President Obama made the decision Wednesday not to release the photos to the public.
