US Official: SEAL Team in Rescue also Killed Osama bin Laden

A U.S. official says the Navy SEAL team that rescued two hostages in Somalia was the same unit that killed Osama bin Laden. SEAL Team Six parachuted into Somalia under cover of darkness Wednesday and rescued an American woman and a Danish man from an outdoor camp where they were being held by Somali pirates, the official said. The same team executed the mission last May in which al-Qaida leader bin Laden was killed. The U.S. official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the top secret operation.
