Osama Bin Laden was living for the past few years not in a cave as many thought, but in a relatively luxurious compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
The mansion was worth an estimated $1 million dollars. Constructed in 2005, it was eight times larger than nearby homes. It was protected by concrete walls and barbed wire.
22 people lived in the mansion and all of them were killed, according to military reports.
