----------

WASHINGTON -- A decade on the run ended in sudden and spectacular fashion for Osama bin Laden, the face of global terrorism and architect of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Long believed to be hiding in caves, bin Laden was tracked down in a costly, custom-built hideout not far from a Pakistani military academy.

Elite American forces descended on the compound in helicopters, killing bin Laden and three other men, along with a woman being used as a human shield. There were no U.S. casualties.

President Barack Obama announced the operation, saying "Justice has been done." Cheering crowds gathered at the White House and at ground zero in Manhattan.

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.

The greatest terrorist threat to the U.S. is now considered to be al-Qaida in Yemen.
