Usama bin Laden is dead, multiple sources confirm . He was killed a week ago by a U.S. bomb.
President Obama is expected to deliver a statement from the White House Sunday night to discuss the major development.
The announcement comes nearly a decade after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks which started a tireless hunt for the terrorist mastermind and Al Qaeda leader.
The U.S. had been waiting for the results of a DNA test to confirm his identity before going public. Sources said the vice president informed congressional leaders late Sunday night that bin Laden had indeed been killed.
