ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A spokeswoman for a Maryland congressman says some members of Congress will be allowed to view photographs of Osama bin Laden's body.

Heather Molino, a spokeswoman for Democratic Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, said Wednesday morning that the congressman is planning to view the photos at CIA headquarters either Wednesday afternoon or Thursday.

Ruppersberger is a member of the House Intelligence Committee. Molino says all of that committee's members are among the congressional representatives who have been offered a chance to see the photographs.

Molino says when Ruppersberger views the photos will depend on how long an Armed Services Committee markup Wednesday on the defense authorization bill takes.
