Washington - A US operation that killed Osama bin Laden on Sunday also left three other men and a woman dead, including a son of the al Qaeda chief, officials said.

"In addition to Osama bin Laden, three adult males were killed in the raid," a US official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told reporters.

Two of the men worked as couriers for bin Laden and the third was believed to be bin Laden's adult son the official said.

"One woman was killed when she was used as a shield by a male combatant. Two other women were injured" in the raid that lasted less than 40 minutes, the official added.

    Well done, after 10 years, that the biggest victory in the history. My concern is: what next, will they stop, or revenge the action?

      The Muslim faith according to the Qoran is a very peaceful faith. How can Bin Laden and his cronies profess to ne Muslims. It is up to proper Muslims to put an end to the imposters - perhaps the name should be terrorist -no matter what creed or religion!

    I was wondering if they left his spawn behind. Apparently not.

    I believe if you allow them to intimidate..their cruelty will grow and even if you feel intimidated..as we are only human...learn and teach your family how not to show it. I don't know who wrote the quote "there is not greater fear than fear itself" Great day for the world another cruel fanatical manipulator exterminated!!!!

    when the Coalition forces captured Saddam in Iraq we saw the pictures, where are the pictures of Bin Laden's body. This is just Propaganda.

      JustinD - 2011-05-02 10:24

    When one looks at the celebrations over the death of an old man going on in the USA, one has to wonder what really is the difference between the fanatical muslim masses who celebrated the fall of the towers and the masses of rednecks running around the USA.

      Irené - 2011-05-02 11:56

      my thoughts EXACTLY. the masses will always remain stupid and fickle- whether they be American, Middle eastern or african. just depends on which you side you root for. but they no better than their so called 'enemies'

    This is no victory. That war is not over. And all the freedoms that have been clamped in and the money that have been spend to take him out? Osama Bin Laden already won the war. The US will collapse soon and Europe will fall with it. Then It will be China and Russia. The world is bankrupt and all the Security upgrades are just to prepare the Doghandlers grip on the Slave machine that is this System.

      drowninja - 2011-05-02 12:21

      lol. World bankrupt? interesting Nortion though. lol. Well, then how are the Chinese going to make money iss their Consumers are going bankrupt, remember their own citizens do not need or can not afford most of the crap they sell- they are Net-Exporters? The is only one way out if the World bankrupcy in an issue: Democracise the Muslim Diaspora and the Africans so they can be economically viable and buy their, "West" and "Bricks", goods.
