A Pakistani woman with a Burberry purse photographed her daughter beside the gate to Osama bin Laden's Abbottabad compound today. An Associated Press photographer captured the moment.

"Someday you can show this picture to your grandchildren and say, 'A terrible man had his brains blown out here.'" The teal and hot pink of the gate do make an aesthetically appealing background.
