Osama bin Laden’s body has been buried at sea, a US official says.
The US decided to bury him at sea because it would have been difficult finding a country willing to accept the remains of the world’s most wanted terrorist, the official said.
After bin Laden was killed in a raid by US forces in Pakistan, senior administration officials said the body would be handled according to Islamic practice and tradition.
That practice calls for the body to be buried within 24 hours, the official said.
The official did not immediately say where the body was buried at sea. Agencies
