Annoying Osama for Fun and Profit

The Australian reports:
"If a ball went into bin Laden's compound the children would not be allowed to get it," said local ice cream vendor Tanvir Ahmed. "They were given money instead; 100-150 rupees ($2-$3) per ball."
A middle class person in Pakistan earns around $5 a day on average.

It's pretty safe to assume the 'residents' of the compound didn't want trouble, or to attract any attention by say, shooting a greedy kid in the face.
