Childhood Friends of Osama Bin Laden Reflect on His Death

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

The BBC's Mike Buchanan visits Osama bin Laden's childhood city of Jeddah where he hears from some of the al-Qaida leader's childhood friends. It's been over a decade since his friends, like Halad Batarfi, have had contact with him. They reflect on his capture and killing and although they reject his views, they are saddened by the news of his death.
