Foreign correspondents spread throughout the Middle East are en route to Pakistan today, following the news that Osama Bin Laden was killed there by U.S. special forces. 2011 has seen a flurry of news from the Middle East and North Africa, with news happening almost daily from Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and other countries.

ABC News of course already had a correspondent in-country in Nick Schifrin, who had the first video footage from the compound this morning.

CNN’s Nic Robertson is heading to the country, where he is expected to appear on the channel tonight. Robertson was in Afghanistan during the 9/11 attacks, and has deep ties to the region.

Fox News Channel’s Greg Palkot and Dominic Di-Natale are also heading to Pakistan.
