Osama bin Laden dead, Obama to speak: reports - CTV News
Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden is dead, nearly ten years after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, multiple sources are telling the media.
U.S. President Barack Obama is set to make an important "national security" announcement from the White House at any moment.
CTV Washington Bureau Chief Paul Workman said bin Laden is believed to have been killed in Pakistan several days ago and the U.S. has his body.
A senior security official has told The Associated Press that bin Laden was killed in a ground operation inside Pakistan -- not by a predator drone.
A nationally televised address on a Sunday night called on such a short notice is considered an "extraordinary" development.
The 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, took the lives of nearly 3,000 people, including 24 Canadians.
Visitors outside the White House could be heard chanting "U.S.A! U.S.A!" prior to Obama's speech.
