News broke Sunday that Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, had been killed earlier that day and the United States had the al-Qaida leader's body.
"I can report to the American people and the world that the United States has conducted an operation that has killed Osama bin Laden," President Obama said in an address to the nation late Sunday night.
As with most major news events in this day and age, people took to their social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter with their reactions.
