An impromptu celebration erupted Sunday night at the White House upon word that Osama Bin Laden was killed.

US President Barack Obama announced that bin Laden's capture came after years of painstaking intelligence work.

The al Qaida leader was killed after a US led special forces team raided a mansion outside Islamabad.

Local TV stations in Pakistan have been airing coverage of the announcement.

Residents hope his death means an end to violence.
