Is this Bin Laden's death photo?

President Obama confirms death of Osama bin LadenImage by k-ideas via Flickr
One of the many images of Osama bin Laden before he was killed.

On Monday, the front page of Vanguardia, a newspaper in Saltillo, Mexico, carried a small photo of what purports to be the face of Osama Bin Laden after he was killed by the U.S. military earlier that day in Pakistan.

Here is a link to the front page on the Newseum Web site:

Is this Bin Laden's bloodied face?  

If this link is broken, you will be directed to the Newseum site. Click on "View Archived Pages," then under Osama bin Laden, click on "May 2, 2011." Next, click on "Sort Papers by Region" and look for the Vanguardia front page.

The photo appears under a banner headline: "They killed Bin Laden."

The small photo in Vanguardia is next to a larger photo of a gray-bearded Bin Laden when he was alive, and the beard and hair on the bloodied face appear too dark to be Bin Laden's. 

Could the photo in the Bin Laden package be one of the hundreds of people killed in Mexico's drug war?

Today, President Obama refused to release any death photos of the terrorist leader.
