High temperatures are expected to be in the 80s on Monday and approaching 90 on Tuesday.

The official, who discussed the matter on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly, declined to specify the methods of identification, but two Obama administration officials said DNA evidence confirmed the death.


The officials claimed the DNA evidence provides a match with 99.9% confidence.


 



 


The Pentagon has also said the bin Laden's wife identified him by name during the raid.
