Pornography at bin Laden site

WASHINGTON -- Two U.S. officials say pornography was among the items seized when U.S. Navy SEALs raided the Pakistani hideout of Osama bin Laden almost two weeks ago.

The officials say it was unclear who the material belonged to, or whether bin Laden viewed it.

Bin Laden's son and two other adult male couriers lived at the compound, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The pornography was confiscated in addition to a handwritten journal, five computers, 10 hard drives and 110 thumb drives seized at the site.
