The once top-secret scale model of Osama bin Laden's hideout in Pakistan used to plan the raid that killed the al-Qa'ida chief has been revealed at the Pentagon in Washington.

With farm fields carved out of clay and the building's walls made of polystyrene, the precise replica was built in six weeks by a special team at the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency.

Bin Laden was killed on 2 May 2011.
