Two Pentagon officials have said the at-sea burial of Osama bin Laden was videotaped and that it probably will be released soon.
The officials said photos of the body prior to its disposal in the North Arabian Sea also may be released.
It was not clear whether the firefight in which US forces are said to have shot bin Laden to death was videotaped.
John Brennan, the White House counter-terrorism chief, told reporters that the administration was still deliberating on release of the material. Making it public might satisfy those who would otherwise doubt that it was bin Laden who was killed.
