WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. officials are pondering whether to release the graphic photos of a dead Osama bin Laden they say show a precision kill shot above his left eye. And there's also video of the al-Qaida leader's swift burial at sea. Officials want to debunk the mythology already building that bin Laden is somehow still alive, but they don't want to inflame Islamic sentiment by showing images of bin Laden with part of his skull blown away by a gunshot.

The photos also show that bin Laden was shot in the chest. U.S. forces delivered the shots near the end of a frenzied firefight in a high-security Pakistani compound, where officials bin Laden had
lived for six years.

Also found at the compound where 23 children, nine women, a son of bin Laden's who also was killed, and the bin Laden courier who unwittingly led the U.S. to it's target,  the man who orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama plans for a trip to New York's ground zero Thursday, to remember the victims of 9/11 and to meet with their families. >>>Should the President release the photos? >>>Click here to take our KHQ Facebook Poll

  • New study of Seattle's $15 minimum wage says it costs jobs

    Monday, June 26 2017 12:25 PM EDT2017-06-26 16:25:52 GMT

    SEATTLE, Wash. - A new study of Seattle's $15-an-hour minimum wage law says it costs jobs, contrary to another new study released last week. The Seattle Times reports a University of Washington team found the law boosted pay in low-wage jobs since 2014  but that it also caused a 9 percent reduction in hours worked. For an average low-wage Seattle worker, that's a loss of about $125 per month.
