Porn stash found in bin Laden compound

A large stash of pornography was found in the hideout of Osama bin Laden by the U.S. commandos who killed him, U.S. officials reportedly said Friday.

The pornography was mainly modern, electronically recorded video, and the collection extensive, an official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, was reportedly cut off from the Internet or other hard-wired communications networks, "so it is unclear how compound residents would have acquired the pornography," Reuters reports.

A video confiscated from the compound and released by the Obama administration showed bin Laden watching pictures of himself on a TV screen, indicating that the compound was equipped with video equipment.

The officials couldn't say where in the compound the porn was found, or who viewed it.
