Abbottabad: Residents of Abbottabad were on Friday morning speculating about what should become of Osama bin Laden's compound in the Pakistani town.

US forces raided the compound on Monday and killed the al Qaeda leader.

"It doesn't matter if they destroy the compound or not but I think it's better that the building should be used by the government," said resident Jazaib Kaleem Jadoon.

A local shopkeeper said he thought it was the duty of the Pakistani government to provide more information about how bin Laden came to be living in Abbottabad.

"Details will come out. It is not possible to hide the facts," Gohar Shah said.

Some of the walls in the town have been daubed with graffiti declaring Abbottabad to be "bin Laden town”.
