Residents remember loved ones after bin Laden death

Residents remembered loved ones and cheered as President Barack Obama announced the death of Osama Bin Laden.

Many said the death brought closure to families who lost a loved one on 9/11. Others hoped the attack would not aggravate new terror attacks on the U.S.

About 100 Bronx residents were killed on Sept. 11, 2001. Residents say they also took the time to remember those in the armed forces fighting overseas.
