Washington: A US Navy SEAL, who participated in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, has claimed that the terror chief was apparently shot in the head as he looked out of his bedroom door.

In his book, titled `No Easy Day`, Mark Bissonnette contradicts previous official versions saying bin Laden as being shot after ducking back into his room and possibly reaching for a weapon.

According to, Bissonnette has written the book under the pseudonym Mark Owen, which is set to be published next week.

The account may again raise questions over whether the raid was intended to capture or simply kill bin Laden, though Bissonnette said the SEALs were told to capture him if he surrendered, the report added.

White House spokesman Tommy Vietor has, however, not commented on the conflicting accounts.
