Photos emerge following Osama Bin Laden raid

Photographs of a crashed US helicopter in Osama Bin Laden's compound have emerged, which are said to have been taken just hours after it was raided by US special forces in Pakistan.

Earlier on Wednesday US President Obama said the US would not release images of Bin Laden taken after he was shot dead on Sunday.

White House spokesman, Jay Carney, said Mr Obama had decided against releasing the graphic images in case they incited more violence or were used as a propaganda tool.
