WASHINGTON (AP) โ€” Americans will likely get a glimpse of Osama bin Laden's daily life.

U.S. officials say home videos that show him strolling around his secret compound could be released Saturday, along with propaganda tapes that have never been made public.

U.S. officials say the footage shot at the terror leader's hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and the propaganda tapes are expected to be released to the news media. The officials spoke anonymously to discuss sensitive information.

The videos and tapes are among the wealth of information collected during the U.S. raid that killed bin Laden and four others. They are said to indicate bin Laden played a strong role in planning and directing attacks by al-Qaida and its affiliates in Yemen and Somalia.
