At the same time, “Barack Obama” announced that “Osama bin Laden” has been killed, crowd went to hold a ceremony in front of the White House. Ardavan Roozbeh reports from the White House:

Could you please tell us why people have gathered here in front of the White House?
It is nearly ten to midnight, considering that about an hour ago Mr. Barack Obama in the White House announced that al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden that nearly for a decade, Americans have been trying to arrest has been killed in an operation by a military team in Pakistan, a very large number of Americans have gathered now in front of the White House in Washington.

Approximately how many people are there now?
At this time that I am talking to you, approximately ten thousand people have gathered  here now and it  seems there are people who express their feelings toward Obama and his message. People are screaming “USA” and have welcomed Obama’s news.

How people feel about what happened? Are all those present there Americans?
Many people I spoke with were expecting a day like this after nine-eleventh 2001. Among the crowd you can see Iranians, Pakistanis, Afghans, Iraqis and even Turkish people. Many of whom are here are not Americans but they are happy and show their emotions because they believe that the very existence of Osama bin Laden, caused insecurity in the region and dishonor for different group of people in the Middle East.

Do you know how long this rally will last?
People are still gathering and as you know, this is in front of the White House in Washington. What brought people here was the Obama’s speech Live on ”CNN”. I cannot say when this gathering is going to be over due to the spontaneous character of this gathering and people are waiting probably that Mr. Obama will somehow respond to them in front of the White House.

I talked with some people. They all expressed their joy and feel that something big has happened. We should not forget that Americans will not forget the nine eleven of 2001 and this event will stay somehow in their history and collective memories. Now, they have a good feeling that one of the greatest leaders of al Qaeda responsible of this incident has been killed.

We hope that someday people in the world continue their lives without war and bloodshed and with no fear think of a better tomorrow. This is Ardavan Roozbeh, for Radio Koocheh in front of the White House, Washington DC.
