    Two Pentagon officials said Monday that the at sea burial of Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was videotaped and probably will be publicly released soon. Photos of the body before its disposal in the North Arabian Sea on Monday also may be released, the officials told. The officials spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because decisions on releasing the materials were pending. But it cannot be said with certainty whether the firefight in which U.S. forces are said to have shot bin Laden to death was videotaped or not.
    The administration was still deliberating on release of the material. Making it public might satisfy those who would otherwise doubt that it was bin Laden who was killed, John Brennan, the White House counterterrorism chief told reporters. Bin Laden was buried at sea from the deck of a U.S. aircraft carrier in the north Arabian Sea after being washed according to Islamic custom during a religious funeral, a U.S. defense official said Monday. "Preparations for at-sea burial began at 1:10 a.m. EST and were completed at 2 a.m. EST," the official said. "Traditional procedures for Islamic burial were followed."
    The official described the procedure to NBC News as follows:
    The deceased's body was washed and then placed in a white sheet.
    The body was placed in a weighted bag.
    A military officer read prepared religious remarks that were translated into Arabic by a native speaker.
    After the words were complete, the body was placed on a prepared flat board, tipped up, whereupon the deceased's body eased into the sea from the USS Carl Vinson.
    A U.S. official said that the burial decision was made after concluding that it would have been difficult to find a country willing to accept the remains. There also was speculation about worry that a grave site could have become a rallying point for militants. President Barack Obama said the remains had been handled in accordance with Islamic custom, which requires speedy burial.
