Osama bin Laden's mansion hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan did not have Internet or phone connections. However it did have a stash of pornography, current and former U.S. officials said Friday. 

In an exclusive interview with Reuters on condition of anonymity, officials say the pornography -- recovered by the U.S. commandos who killed him -- consists of modern, electronically recorded video and is fairly extensive.

Officials said they are not precisely sure yet where in the compound the pornography was discovered or who had been viewing it. But more to the point, officials are uncertain if bin Laden himself had acquired or viewed the materials.

According to three other U.S. officials familiar with evidence gathered during investigations of other Islamic militants, the discovery of pornography is not uncommon, Reuters reported.

The U.S. commandos, it is said, also carted away other materials, including digital thumb drives which U.S. officials believe may have been a principle means to parlay messages to and from the former al Qaeda leader.
