9/11 widow has mixed emotions over bin Laden's death

Maria Sayegh, who lost her husband on 9/11, says while she's grateful for the troops who killed Osama bin Laden, the war is far from over and she is upset her children are growing up in a world of hate.

Sayegh's husband Michael McHugh, a Bronxville village trustee who worked for Cantor Fitzgerald, was just 35 when he was killed on 9/11. She said she felt a range of emotions upon hearing the news, grateful that he's been killed, but adding that it doesn't bring her or her children any closure.

"My children and I have suffered enormously because of a coward," said Sayegh. "He lived a coward and died a coward."
