article imageBin Laden buried at sea

By KJ Mullins     May 2, 2011 in World
There will be no grave for the followers of Osama bin Laden to visit. Official reports say that the man called the face of global terrorism by CNN has been buried at sea.
U.S. officials used facial imagining and other techniques to identify the body of Bin Laden. During the fire fight in which he was killed Bin Ladin is said to have fought back and was shot in the head.
According to ABC News, it is Muslim tradition for the body to be washed by Muslim men and then buried as quickly as possible.
Burials are generally simple with ground burials performed with wrapping the body in a simple white sheet, or sea burials, in case somebody dies on board during a voyage.
A senior administration official told Jake Tapper this about the body: "We are ensuring it is handled in accordance with Islamic practice and tradition. It's something we take seriously and therefore it's being handled in an appropriate manner.‬"
CNN reports that a U.S. official said that Osama bin Laden has been buried at sea.
