Bin Laden buried at sea, “remains had been handled in accordance with Islamic custom”




The New York Times sent this as a breaking news alert:

American officials said that Osama bin Laden, who was killed in a firefight with United States forces in Pakistan on Sunday, was taken to Afghanistan, and later buried at sea.

And, there’s this from AP:

Bin Laden’s body was quickly buried at sea and Obama said the remains had been handled in accordance with Islamic custom, which requires speedy burial.
