President Barack Obama will deliver an unexpected statement on Sunday evening.

A White House pool report says:

"Pool is informed that there is no longer a lid and that the president will make a statement as early as 10:30 p.m."

CNN's Steve Brusk tweets that "we are told it is a national security related announcement by the President."

The AP reports:

Al-Qaida mastermind Osama bin Laden is dead and the United States has his body, a person familiar with the developments says.

President Barack Obama is expected to make that announcement from the White House late Sunday night.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to speak ahead of the president.

This is a developing story... More information to come...
