Britain warned of Ebola "tragedy"

Navy Seal O’Neill’s account of Bin Laden shooting disputed

Earlier this week, former Navy Seal Robert O'Neill revealed himself as the man who killed Osama Bin Laden.

However, his account does not match that of another former Seal, Matt Bissonnette, who described events differently in a 2012 book.

Mr Bissonnette told NBC news: “Two different people telling two different stories for two different reasons."

He added “Whatever he says, he says. I don’t want to touch that.”

Osama Bin Laden was killed in a 2011 Navy Seal raid in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The al-Qaeda leader’s body was buried at sea.

Falling poppies to be projected on Big Ben
