Following the news of the death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, Google map users have updated the location service with details of the terrorist's hideout.

Users of Google Maps have added the alleged position of Osama's former hideout under the location "Osama Bin Laden's Compound, near Abbotabad, Pakistan." The location can be viewed at http://bit.ly/kdiWIo.

Though the location when viewed on satellite imagery does look a little suspect, it is not known if this was the actual location of the terrorist leader's hideout.

Around 35 people have reviewed the location; reviews include "Free HBO, but 'death to America!' chants were getting old," and "great hideout would use again."

Osama bin Laden was killed by American lead forces in a raid on May 2, with social networkers in Pakistan unwittingly live-tweeting the events beginning at around 1:00am local time.
