WASHINGTON - The compound in Pakistan where U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden was an "active command and control center" where the al-Qaida leader remained in strategic and operational control of the organization, a senior US intelligence official said on Saturday.

The official, who released five video clips of bin Laden taken from the compound in Abbottabad, said the information retrieved by US forces represented the largest trove of intelligence ever obtained from a single terrorism suspect.
