Book on bin Laden raid lands Sept 11

New York - A first-hand account of the Navy SEAL mission that killed Osama bin Laden is coming out on 11 September.

Dutton, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA), announced on Wednesday that Mark Owen's No Easy Day will "set the record straight" on the raid in Pakistan in May 2011.

"Mark Owen" is a pseudonym for the combat veteran who was one of the first fighters to enter bin Laden's third floor hideout and also witnessed his death, according to Dutton.

The co-author, journalist Kevin Maurer, has worked on four previous books.

One senior military official said the manuscript was not shared with special operations officials, to check for possible disclosure of classified information. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to discuss the vetting of classified information.

AP Intelligence Writer Kimberly Dozier contributed to this report from Washington.
