A decade long man hunt is finally over. On Sunday evening, President Obama has officially announced that Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, is dead.

It was said that “A small team of Americans carried out the attack and took custody of bin Laden’s remains.”

The news of bin Laden’s death comes just a few months before the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centers and the Pentagon, killing over 3,000 people.
