White House: Bin Laden was unarmed during raid on compound

Osama bin Laden was unarmed when US forces raided his compound in Pakistan, but he did put up a fight before he was shot, White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Tuesday.
He added that the White House is considering the possibility of releasing photos of the al-Qaida leader's body after he was killed, but that there are concerns that publication of the photos could be inflammatory.
"It could be inflammatory, we take this into account", Carney said about the pictures, which he described as "gruesome."
