(CNN) -- [Updated 2:30 p.m. Monday, April 30] This is a view of Abbottabad, the town in northwest Pakistan where Osama bin Laden was killed one year ago this week.

Bin Laden was living in a three-story compound with approximately two dozen people, including his relatives and one of his most trusted couriers, when a team of U.S. Navy SEALs moved in. The United States had been tracking the courier for years, and there was strong intelligence that bin Laden might have been living with him at the heavily guarded compound.

Bin Laden's death ended a decade-long manhunt and brought a sense of closure to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

"The cause of securing our country is not complete. But tonight, we are once again reminded that America can do whatever we set our mind to," President Obama told the nation. "That is the story of our history, whether it's the pursuit of prosperity for our people or the struggle for equality for all our citizens, our commitment to stand up for our values abroad and our sacrifices to make the world a safer place."

Congrats to reader "wahrheit13" for answering correctly in our photo challenge this week.

[Original post] Do you know where this photo was taken?

If you think you know the answer -- or if you just want to take a wild guess -- post it in the comments area below. Later in the day, we'll reveal where the photo was taken and give credit to those who figured it out first. (The more detail, the better!)

Each Monday morning, we'll post a new photo and challenge you to tell us its origin. The photo might be related to a prominent news story or theme -- or it might just be something that caught our eye.

Good luck!
