Canadian singer Nelly Furtado has applauded U.S. President Barack Obama for refusing to release photographic evidence of terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden's death.

The American leader, Barack Obama, announced on Sunday that the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks had died at the hands of the U.S. military, and he was subsequently buried at sea.

Conspiracy theorists called for Barack Obama to release a picture of bin Osama bin Laden's body to prove he really had died, but the Democrat refused, insisting U.S. officials do not want to parade images as "trophies" as it could incite retaliation attacks.

And is glad a grisly image of bin Laden with a bullet wound to the head is being kept hidden away.

In a post on her Twitter page, she writes, "So grateful that we'll have one less violent photo circulating throughout the world. White House has good taste."
