President Obama to appear on "60 Minutes" Sunday

Will appear in his first and only interview since the killing of Osama bin Laden

President Obama has agreed to sit down with "60 Minutes" correspondent Steve Kroft for his first and only interview since the killing of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.

The interview, to be conducted in the White House Wednesday, will be broadcast on "60 Minutes" this Sunday, May 8 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

The president announced late last Sunday that the al Qaeda leader was killed during a raid at a compound in Abbottabad, which is close to Pakistan's capital of Islamabad.

The assault on the compound - carried out by a team of elite U.S. special forces - yielded not only bin Laden but a treasure trove of intelligence information retrieved from computer hard drives and other materials culled from the site.
