There are a couple more photos of the compound but they didn't seem to offer any more info.

In another thread it was claimed that a reporter described the operation as GRIM before getting cut off.
Maybe they shot down a US blackhawk and killed the US special forces and they are trying to cover it up by saying they killed bin laden??
Another resident, Nasir Khan, said commandos had encircled the compound as three helicopters hovered overhead. "All of a sudden there was firing toward the helicopters from the ground," said Khan, who watched the drama unfold from his roof. "There was intense firing and then I saw one of the helicopters crash."
Bin Laden was indeed holed up in a two-story house 100 yards from a Pakistani military academy when four helicopters carrying U.S. forces swooped in . His guards opened fire on the commandos, and his final hiding place was left in flames, witnesses said.
One of the helicopters was forced to land unexpectedly because the steep walls of the compound left too little air beneath it to allow it to hover over the scene as planned, a senior administration official told NBC News' Courtney Kube.
The same condition made it impossible for the helicopter to take off afterward, the official said, leading U.S. forces to destroy the craft on the ground to protect its technology and intelligence.
U.S. officials said no Americans were hurt in the operation.
