Canadian singer Nelly Furtado has applauded U.S. President Barack Obama for refusing to release photographic evidence of terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden's death.
The American leader announced on Sunday (01May11) that the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks had died at the hands of the U.S. military, and he was subsequently buried at sea.
Conspiracy theorists called for Obama to release a picture of bin Laden's body to prove he really had died, but the Democrat refused, insisting U.S. officials do not want to parade images as "trophies" as it could incite retaliation attacks.
And Furtado is glad a grisly image of bin Laden with a bullet wound to the head is being kept hidden away.
In a post on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "So grateful that we'll have one less violent photo circulating throughout the world. White House has good taste."
