Template:Infobox Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden (born March 10, 1957, reported dead on May 1, 2011) was a Saudi Arabian militant and the founder and former leader of al-Qaeda. An organization that claimed responsibility for the 9/11 Attacks.

On May 1, 2011 (May 2 in U.S. standard time), bin Laden was pronounced dead at age 54 after he was shot in his home by the U.S. Navy SEALs ordered by Barack Obama. Shortly thereafter, many speculations appeared claiming that he may yet still be alive. No official photo was ever released of his body. The escuse given was that the people of the middle east would find the display a form of boast, and offensive. Dispite this some news stations released a photo claiming it to be the dead body of Osama. This photo has been analysed to the point of being determined as fake, for one thing, no head shot appears in the location discribed as his death wound. [1] The lack of real photographic evidence, and some conflicting accounts has lead to on going speculation that he may yet still be alive, leading al-Qaeda from the shadows with Ayman al-Zawahiri as a mere figure head.
