ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- A spokeswoman for a Maryland congressman says some members of Congress will be allowed to view photographs of Osama bin Laden's body.

Heather Molino, a spokeswoman for Democratic Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, said Wednesday morning that the congressman is planning to view the photos at CIA headquarters either Wednesday afternoon or Thursday.

Ruppersberger is a member of the House Intelligence Committee. Molino says all of that committee's members are among the congressional representatives who have been offered a chance to see the photographs.
