  • GlobalPost screengrab

Residents of the Pakistan city where Osama bin Laden hid react to the news of his death. Some eyewitnesses heard a series of blasts. Others say it's nothing but U.S. propaganda.

Bin Laden was killed by a team of U.S. Navy SEALs on Sunday.

The raid itself lasted about 40 minutes and in the end 22 people were killed or captured. Bin Laden, held responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks that killed thousands of Americans, was killed by two gunshots. His body was placed aboard one of the choppers with the returning soldiers.
