NBC News — Residents of Abbottabad, Pakistan are still trying to come to grips with their newfound infamy as home to one of the greatest mass murderers in modern history. Many still can't bring themselves to believe that Osama Bin Laden lived in Abbottabad for at least five years before being killed by Navy Seals in a pre-dawn helicopter raid on may second. They also wonder what will happen to the Al-Qaeda chief's three-story concrete compound in the middle of town.
Some believe authorities should make it a museum that will attract foreign tourists and their cash. Others think the town would be best served by demolishing the building, wiping out a symbol of Bin Laden's worldwide insurgency.
