US intelligence officials have released videos showing Osama bin Laden watching himself on television and rehearsing his recorded video appearances.


The videos released on Saturday were offered as further proof that Navy SEALs killed the al-Qaida leader earlier this week in a raid on his compound in a garrison town of Pakistan.

The videos were seized from Osama Bin Laden's compound in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad.

One video shows bin Laden watching live news coverage of himself on television.

In another, he has neatly trimmed his beard before filming a propaganda video. This one was released without sound and titled "Message to the American People".The US government said it was likely made sometime last fall.

The videos were offered as further proof of bin Laden's death. It's said these clips are part of the largest collection of senior terrorist materials ever collected.

US intelligence officials say the videos also indicate that the compound was an active command center from which bin Laden directed al Qaeda.

Officials hope the evidence seized during the raid will help break the back of al-Qaida behind the 9.11 attacks a decade ago.
