US officials say Osama bin Laden’s body was processed and sent to sea aboard the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson. The brother of a Sioux Falls man was aboard the ship when it all happened. Ben Dunsmoor will find out more about what it’s been like on the ship tonight on KELOLAND News.  

Top White House Officials are still deciding whether to release photos of the body to prove his death.  But White House aides say they’re “gruesome”.   Let us know whether you think they should be shared with the public on our KELOLAND Facebook page.

As we learn more about the operation to kill Osama bin Laden, some are questioning parts of the operation.  I’m specifically referring to the fact the US military used the code name “Geronimo” for bin Laden. The Apache leader fought the Mexican and US armies after his family was killed and was able to evade capture until 1886. Some Native Americans and those with the US Senate Indian Affairs Committee are speaking out against the code name. Hailey Higgins is getting reaction from Native Americans in KELOLAND.

And, it has the signature of a local official, but if you’ve received an e-mail going around that says someone’s buying up UPS uniforms for a possible terrorist attack, police say there’s no reason to be alarmed. Shawn Neisteadt has a warning about the “warning” tonight on KELOLAND News.
