Breaking snail mail?

A US Senator has been shown 15 photographs taken after Bin Laden was killed on May 2 in a US commando raid - 12 photos from the Pakistani compound and three from the ship where they buried him at sea.
Certainly a news worthy item. The Australian, and Sydney Morning Herald thought so:
Reported by The Australian May 12, 2011 12:59pm
Reported by the Sydney Morning Herald May 12, 1.16pm

Update: ABC Snail Mail arrives at 6:40pm in a story from AFP...only 5 hours late.

Let's see how long it takes for our "premium" news service to catch up. Any bets? 
Surprising they are so slow off the mark, especially as they have a few correspondents in the US?
