WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama says the world is better and safer because of the death of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

Speaking at the White House, Obama said bin Laden's death show that the United States has kept its commitment to seeing that justice is done.

Obama also praised the people gathered spontaneously at the White House and in New York to celebrate bin Laden's death, saying that embodied the true spirit and patriotism of America.

A team of elite American forces killed bin Laden during a raid at the compound in Pakistan where the elusive terror mastermind had been hiding.

Obama spoke during a White House ceremony to award the Medal of Honor posthumously to two veterans of the Korean War.
