Breaking news or false lead?

The (Australian) ABC is running a French report that Osama Bin Laden died of typhoid in Pakistan last month.

As I post this hasn't been picked up by many other media outlets, though
The New York Times website has a report with a cautious headline "France to Probe Bin Laden Death Report Leak".

I'll be interested to see whether any of these matters (the leak, the report and the death itself) are corroborated.
