    Yale Campus Celebrating Bin Laden's Death

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     eileenshim says, 'There were around 200 students gathered, blowing vuvuzelas, waving flags, chanting slogans, singing the national anthem, and hugging each other. The crowd then moved to Old Campus, a central square where the freshmen dorms are located, and blasted music and took part in revelry. It was an electric atmosphere and a lot of people, especially Muslim students, seemed to respond emotionally to the news.
    - nsaidi, CNN iReport producer

    Students, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, took to the campus streets to celebrate the announcement of Bin Laden's death.
