So, tonight there is one less mass murderer in the world. Osama bin Laden has been killed by US forces in Abbotabad, Pakistan, apparently being shot while taking a woman hostage.
If true, he died as he lived - a coward who had no qualms about innocents getting hurt. No 72 virgins for him, that's for sure.
While this is by no means the end of the fight against terrorism, I can imagine that many terrorists will not get a good night's sleep tonight.
