A combination photo shows an undated handout photo provided by Taiwanese coach Jimmy Wu which according to Wu is Osama Bin Laden, and an undated photo of Osama bin Laden (R).

Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was shot dead by U.S. forces in Pakistan on May 2, 2011.

Wu, a top Taiwan judo coach, told Reuters on May 7, 2011 in an interview on the sidelines of a tournament in the central city of Taichung that he came across bin Laden when coaching the Saudi Arabian national judo team from 1981 to 1991.

Wu showed Reuters photographs of himself and a tall, thin, bearded, serious young man with a mop of black hair whom he said was Osama. Osama attended lessons two to three times a week but Wu never saw him again after 1984.
