The picture which was broadcasted by Pakistani media on Monday reportedly shows Osama bin Laden after he was killed by American forces at a Pakistan hideout.
Pakistani TV broadcasts image of 'bin Laden face'
Pakistani television stations on Monday broadcast what they described as unconfirmed images of Osama bin Laden's bloodied face after the United States said he had been killed.
"The picture of Osama bin Laden's dead body has been released. It is unverified," said the commentator on Pakistan's largest TV network, Geo.
Other channels also showed the image of a face, which sported a bushy and black beard without any visible traces of the white or grey detected in the most recent video footage of bin Laden when he was alive.
There were extensive blood stains on the forehead and left temple. The right eye was shut but the whites of the left eye were visible.
The hair was mangled and the mouth was slightly open with teeth showing. (AFP)
