Obama To Give CBS First Interview On Osama bin Laden's Death

CBS has announced that President Barack Obama will sit down with '60 Minutes' and Steve Kroft for his first interview since the killing of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.

The interview, to be conducted in the White House Wednesday, will be broadcast on '60 Minutes' this Sunday.

Obama announced late Sunday that the al Qaeda leader was killed during a raid, carried out by a team of elite U.S. special forces, at a compound in the city of Abbottabad in Pakistan.

The raid yielded not only bin Laden but a treasure trove of intelligence from seized computer hard drives and other materials.

Obama's address was watched by an estimated 56.5 million US viewers, despite the late hour on the East coast. It's thought to be the highest number for any speech the president has given since taking office in January 2009.
