US releases 'bin Laden' tapes

Clips allegedly show al-Qaeda leader watching himself on TV and preparing for speeches.

    The United States has released home videos of Osama bin Laden.

    The five clips released by the Pentagon paint a picture and an image of a man very different from that typically associated with the al-Qaeda leader.

    They include pictures that allegedly show Bin Laden watching himself on Al Jazeera and video that depicts him getting ready for a broadcast.

    Al Jazeera's Rosiland Jordan has more.
