MAP 1) On May 1st, US Navy seals killed Osama Bin Laden in a mansion located in Abbotabad. His body was later buried in the sea. During the raid, one of Bin Laden's sons was killed as well. No US troops were killed, although a helicopter crashed during the mission due to a mechanical failure.
MAP 2) Here’s an interesting infographic showing confirmed facts of the raid that ended the life of Osama bin Laden along with a play-by-play of tweets from @ReallyVirtual, the IT guy who happened to be a couple of kilometers away from the action as it was happening.
