Line diagram showing the layout of the Osama Bin Laden compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. It consists of two main buildings: a three-story building, and then a smaller building. It was believed that Osama bin Laden and his family were living on the second and third floors of the lager building, and two other families residing in the other building as well as on the first floor of the bin Laden building. The walls around the compound were up to 18 feet high. The balconies had seven-feet-high privacy walls. There were, in addition to wall heights, barbed wire along the top of the walls. The residents of the compound burned their own trash. There were two gates at the compound, as well, and opaque windows.
