Satellite images of the region of Pakistan where Osama bin Laden was likely shot and killed have been released by Digital Globe, a satellite imagery provider.

Anyone with Google Earth can see the compound. The coordinates are:

34°10'9.30"N 73°14'33.42"E

Turn on 3D mapping and you'll get a better view.

Nope note just you, there was a comparison on Reddit a few days back, blew my mind when I seen it. Has anyone even seen a prayer carpet/rug in the photos? I haven't been able to see one.
