No closure for dead soldier's family

For a family who lost their son in a roadside bomb in Afghanistan, Bin Laden's death brings little comfort.

    Since the US invasion of Afghanistan following the 9/11 attacks, nearly 1500 US servicemen and servicewomen have lost their lives.

    In the US, that has caused untold pain for their loved ones.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds met one such family.
