MYFOXNY.COM - U.S. officials reportedly have two sets of photos of a dead Osama bin Laden.

The first set were reportedly taken at a military hanger after his body was removed from his compound in Pakistan. The second set of photos were reportedly taken on the USS Carl Vinson, shortly before his remains were lowered into the North Arabian Sea.

News of the second set comes from a U.S. government official quoted by Fox News.

The White House is still deciding whether or not to release a photograph of Usama bin Laden's body, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters Tuesday.

"I don't have any updates on that," Carney said when asked whether the White House would release a photo of the dead terrorist leader. "We will continue to review that and make decisions about the appropriateness of releasing that information."

"There are sensitivities here concerning the appropriateness of releasing photos of Osama bin Laden in the aftermath of this fight," Carney went on.

He added, "It's fair to say that it's a gruesome photograph."

Bin Laden was killed by a shot above his left eye. The shot blew away part of his skull. Bin Laden was also shot in the chest.

Even more details on the OBL photos
10 hard drives, 5 computers and more than 100 storage devices which includes discs, DVDs and thumb drives were taken from the compound.
1. Photos of OBLs body at a hangar after he was brought back to Afghanistan. This is the most recognizable with a clear picture of his face. The picture is gruesome because he has a massive open head wound across both eyes. Its very bloody and gory.

2. Photos from the burial at sea on the USS Carl Vinson. Photos of OBL before the shroud was put on and then wrapped in the shroud.
The official says the challenge is that the picture that includes the most recognizable image of OBLs face from the hangar in Afghanistan is so gruesome and mangled its not appropriate for say the front page of the newspaper. On the other hand, this is the one that is most identifiable as him.
