Bin Laden's compound being demolished in Pakistan

The authorities in Pakistan have begun to demolish the house occupied by the Al-Qaeda leader, Osama Bin Laden.

American special forces killed Bin Laden during a raid of his compound in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad last May.

Residents said bulldozers were being used to destroy the outer walls of the compound, which served as the Al Qaeda leader's hideout for more than five years.
