President Barack Obama announced on Sunday night that United States Special Forces have killed Osama bin Laden and taken custody of his body. In his announcement, Obama said:

Let us think back to the sense of unity that prevailed on 9/11. I know that it has at times frayed. Yet today’s achievement is a testament to the greatness of our country.

Hundreds of people chanted and applauded outside the White House. But soon after the President spoke, the U.S. State Department issued a world-wide alert of “enhanced potential for anti-American violence” due to the death of bin Laden.
