The CIA will get the opportunity to further search the compound in Pakistan where Osama bin Laden lived before he was killed by Navy SEALs, U.S. and Pakistani officials said Thursday. The CIA will look for fingerprints and other clues.

It’s part of confidence-building measures to restore trust between the U.S. and Pakistani intelligence agencies. Pakistan agreed to the search after a meeting between Pakistani intelligence chief Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha and CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell last week in Islamabad, a Pakistani official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss matters of intelligence.
