THE CIA HAS released aerial photography confirming the location of Bin Laden’s Abbottabad mansion, as well as diagrams (via Ogle Earth).

Since last summer they had suspected the residence of an important enemy figure here.

This large compound, protected by concrete walls and barbed wire, was built to shelter Bin Laden in 2005. 22 people were living in the building, and all of them were killed or captured by Seal Team 6.
