Monday, May 2, will mark five years since al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was killed by US forces in Pakistan.
The ringleader of the terror group was shot dead by US Navy seals during a raid on his compound in Abbottabad in north-eastern Pakistan in 2011 - an incident which many hoped would bring about the end of the so-called War On Terror.
US forces said that bin Laden's body was taken to Afghanistan for identification before being buried at sea, according to the Islamic tradition of burial within 24 hours after death.
The announcement of his death saw celebrations around America as US president Barack Obama claimed that "justice has been done" after the terror attacks on 11 September.
But many questioned the circumstances surrounding bin Laden's death, including the decision not to release any images of his body or DNA evidence.
Unsurprisingly, it didn't take long for conspiracy theories surrounding his death to circulate.
Here are some of the most popular, and intriguing:
He was not buried at sea

Some have claimed that bin Laden was not in fact buried at sea as the US claimed but was instead flown to America for a secret cremation.
The Daily Mail reported that leaked emails from an intelligence firm said that the terror leader was not as American forces claimed but actually involved cremation in the US.
He claims it was instead a Hollywood-like set-up which actually saw Pakistani hand over Bin Laden to be executed by SEALs.
He died earlier but the announcement was delayed so as not to clash with the royal wedding
One of the most bizarre theories surrounding Bin Laden's death is that he died much earlier but the news was suppressed so as not to take the limelight away from the marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
He said: “Isis controls a large territory in Syria and Iraq after it successfully captured Mosul, while Al-Qaeda has no territory. Isis also controls oil rigs in Iraq and Syria and has substantial financial resources.
“Because of its tremendous successes and its proclamation of Islamic Caliphate (declaring all other groups invalid and requiring members to pledge allegiance to Baghdadi as caliph) potential jihadi now tend to join Isis rather than joining Al-Qaeda.
“Finally, at least 25 Islamist groups around the world have pledged allegiance to Isis, some that were formerly associated with Al-Qaeda. Most of these Islamist groups are small, with some exceptions, including Nigerian group Boko Haram.”
