As President Obama traveled to New York City to honor the victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks, more details have been released about Sunday's deadly raid on Osama bin Laden's Pakistan compound.
U.S. officials say when U.S. Navy SEALs entered the room where the terrorist leader was discovered, a woman charged toward the commandos. The SEALs quickly grabbed her, fearing she might be wearing a suicide vest.
Bin Laden was unarmed, but an assault rifle and pistol were reportedly within his reach. According to officials, the SEALs fired after the terrorist leader lunged for those weapons.
Attorney Gen. Eric Holder says the team that carried out the raid was prepared to take the terrorist leader alive, but he made no attempt to surrender.
Mich. Rep. Mike Rogers, on the House Intelligence Committee, called the killing "absolutely the prudent and right thing to do by that special forces officer."
