WASHINGTON (AP) -- A U.S. official says Osama bin Laden was shot
above his left eye, blowing away part of his skull.
The precision kill shot was delivered by a member of Navy's
elite SEAL Team Six during a pre-dawn raid Monday on bin Laden's
hideout in Pakistan.
Photos of bin Laden's injuries were transmitted to Washington as
proof that the mission was a success. The administration wasn't
releasing the photos Monday.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not
authorized to speak to reporters.
