Students celebrate Bin Laden's death

President Barack Obama announced at 11:35 p.m. Sunday the death of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, the public face behind the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Bin Laden was killed Sunday in a firefight in Abbottabad, Pakistan during an authorized CIA operation.

Obama addressed the implications for the United States in a speech delivered from the East Room of the White House as students watched in excitement.

"Everyone remembers exactly where they were on September 11, and everyone should remember where they were tonight,” said Penn Democrats president and College sophomore Isabel Friedman.
