Known as Waziristan Haveli, the place was a home for Osama Bin Laden for around five years. Located just a kilometre down the road of the Pakistan Military Academy (presumably, because that would the last place that they would look for Osama Bin Laden) it was well-built and had many safety features.
The compound was roughly in the shape of a triangle, with walls from eight to 13 feet high topped with barbwire. That outer wall concealed a second and third gate before anyone could actually get to the haveli. The compound was large enough for the occupants to hold a hundred chickens, a vegetable garden and several trees.
The mansion itself was three floors high with several bedrooms. It was modestly furnished and filled with personal items like a teaching room for the kids, bathrooms, kitchens, old TVs and other such junk.Image: Local residents gather outside a house where al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was caught and killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan, May 3, 2011.
