(Newser) – Looks like Osama bin Laden's body won't be coming to the US. The terror mastermind was killed and "buried at sea" following a raid by US forces on his Pakistan hideout, a US official has told AP.
Authorities decided to handle his body according to Islamic traditions, which call for corpses to be buried within 24 hours. Because it would have been difficult to find a nation willing to accept bin Laden's remains, he has already been dropped into the ocean. The source refused to divulge any other details, citing national security concerns.
