Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was killed by American Navy SEALs on Sunday, according to President Barack Obama. His body was later buried at sea. The mastermind of 9/11 has been the focus of a world-wide manhunt for nearly 10 years. The announcement of his death, made by President Obama in a late-night speech from the East Wing of the White House on Sunday, brought thousands to the streets in celebration, and was the primary topic on Twitter and Facebook throughout the night.
