The American commandos who killed Osama bin Laden found a "stash of pornography" in his hideout, U.S. officials told Reuters.


The news agency reported that the "pornography recovered in bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, consists of modern, electronically recorded video and is fairly extensive," based on discussions with current and former officials.

No further details were provided, as the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they did not know how the materials were acquired or where in the compound they were found.

Officials found a trove of information in bin Laden's hideout, including a video of the al Qaeda leader watching himself on TV.
