U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday once again hailed the death of terror mastermind Osama bin Laden, saying the world is safer because of it.

Speaking at a previously scheduled White House ceremony for another matter, Obama said bin Laden's death marked a "good day for America," and the United States has kept its commitment to justice.

"The world is safer, it is a better place because of the death of Osama bin Laden," said the president.

Obama on Sunday night announced the killing of bin Laden, the architect of the 9/11 terrorist strikes in 2001 that killed over 3, 000 people.
