Reuters reports:

Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden tried to hide behind women as U.S. special forces attacked his compound in Pakistan Monday and one died being used as a human shield, the White House said.

White House counter terrorism chief John Brennan also told reporters that it had not yet been determined if a photograph of bin Laden's corpse would be released to the media.
