BBC defends Osama Bin Laden death coverage

By Ryan Love,


The BBC has defended its reporting of the death of Osama Bin Laden.

US President Barack Obama confirmed late on Sunday night that the al-Qaeda leader had been killed by special forces when they raided a compound in northern Pakistan.

However, some viewers felt that the BBC had "devoted too much coverage" to Bin Laden's death and the aftermath of the historic announcement.

"The discovery and death of Osama Bin Laden was by any standards a major news story," an official response from the corporation stated. "The operation to find him had lasted over a decade, during which time al-Qaeda has continued to mount attacks around the world.

"The details of his killing, his hiding place and the many political ramifications in the US, Pakistan and elsewhere fully justified the level of coverage BBC News devoted to the story."

Media organisations around the world continue to provide widespread coverage and reaction to Bin Laden's death, as new photographs from within the compound showing several dead bodies were leaked to Reuters.
