Osama bin Laden’s infamous hideaway is now only a click away – after boffins uploaded it to Google Earth.

Osama bin Laden's Pakistan home on Google Earth

The former Al Qaeda leader’s lair in Abbottabad, Pakistan, has been recreated using Google 3D Warehouse.

Web users can browse around the perimeter of the compound and even take a virtual stroll in the grounds.

The property, described by CIA officials as having ”extraordinary physical security”, was eight times the size of the typical Abbottabad dwelling.

It boasted walls up to 18ft which used to conceal the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks.

But while it was heavily fortified, it lacked luxury with bin Laden going without a phone line and the internet while his family were forced to burn rubbish in the garden.
