How should Christians respond to the death of Usama Bin Laden?

Today I read a very thoughtful article by Pastor John Piper about the death of Bin Laden. From the day I heard about his death and the resultant euphoria by many, I wondered what should be an appropriate response. Should we rejoice? Should we take pleasure when our enemies die? Please don't misunderstand these questions; this man was bent on the destruction of America and her allies. He was the mastermind of the 9-11 attack on America where thousands of innocent people died. He was an evil person. But I am not sure if those who follow Jesus should simply join with the world and rejoice in the death of our enemies. Would love to hear your thoughts on this.
