A US lawmaker, who was given the rare opportunity by the CIA to view the death photos of Osama bin Laden, has said the pictures were “pretty gruesome” and there was no doubt that the al Qaeda chief was dead.

Senator James Inhoffe, a Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he was shown 15 photographs taken of bin Laden after the Qaeda leader was killed by US special forces in a raid on May 2 in Abbottabad in Pakistan.

“They’re gruesome, of course, because it was taken right after the incident,” Inhoffe, the first Congressman to view the death photos of bin Laden, told the Fox News in an interview.
