Mohammad Bashir lives in front of the house in Abbottabad, where Osama bin Laden allegedly lived.
According to a Pakistan news report (Veterans Today):
Mohammad Bashir was on his rooftop when a helicopter arrived over 'Osama's house'.
Men landed from the helicopter.
These men spoke Pashtun (a Pakistani language)
After about 20 minutes, they loaded several people into the helicopter.
More helicopters arrived from different directions but did not land.
The first helicopter exploded above the compound.
There were then dead bodies all over the compound.
Police and soldiers arrived to clear up the bodies.
Why did the helicopter explode?
Were there two opposing military factions in the air?
There is increasing evidence that it was Pakistan forces who 'attacked' the compound in Abbottabad, alleged to be hiding Osama bin Laden.

2. "The choppers which participated in the raid were very noisy, to the point of irritating some of the Tweeters.
"One of the Tweeters says: : 'It was too noisy to be a spy craft, or, a very poor spy craft it was.'
"He again says: 'I started noticing the helicpoter when the noise got irritating'.
"If the helicopters were so noisy, how is it the local security people including those in the local police stations and in the Military Academy did not hear the noise and try to make enquiries about the source of the noise?
"There are also references in the Tweets to a black-out in the town, roads being blocked, telephones going dead and sirens being sounded...
"A taxi-driver has been quoted as saying as follows: 'The army has cordoned off the crash area and is conducting door-to-door search in the surrounding.'
"A sweeper has been quoted as saying as follows: 'A family also died in the crash, and one of the helicopter riders got away and is now being searched for.'
