As news spread across the heavily Middle Eastern suburb of Dearborn about Osama bin Laden's death, a small crowd gathered outside City Hall, chanting "USA" and waving American flags in celebration.
Across town, some honked their car horns late Sunday night and early Monday morning as they drove along the main street where most of the Arab-American restaurants and shops are located.
At the Arabica CafDe, the big screen TVs that normally show sports were all turned to news about bin Laden.
Twenty-four-year-old waitress Leila Hussein says it's good that he's dead. She was in middle school when the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks happened.
CafDe manager Mohamed Kobeissi says it's finally justice for those victims.
