Photos of Bin Laden will not be released - Obama

President Barack Obama has decided that photos of the dead Osama Bin Laden should not be released.

US officials had been discussing whether to publish pictures of Bin Laden's body to counter conspiracy theories that he did not die.

But Mr Obama believed the images could inflame sensitivities, saying: "We don't trot out this stuff as trophies."
