We were all shocked yesterday to hear that Osama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan by U.S. Armed Forces. At that exact moment, one which we will probably never forget, many of us felt a rush of emotion sweeping over. For most Americans, that feeling was filled with joy and exhilaration. After nearly a decade since the tragic attacks on 9/11, justice was finally served.
This significant event is surely one of the most historic in our lives. The only thing that could compare would be the death of Hitler, who committed suicide by gunshot on April 30, 1945. Coincidentally, their deaths were both announced on the very same day - May 1.
But reactions weren't necessarily the same for everyone across the globe. Many people have mixed feelings about celebrating a person's death. And then, on the polar opposite spectrum, there are those extremists in the Middle East who condemn the killing and have made Osama bin Laden a martyr.
Photojournalists around the world have taken incredible shots of people's reactions to the news of Osama bin Laden's death.
