    pass/ compound

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?

    Lawmakers in Pakistan passed a resolution early on Saturday, May 14, condemning the breach of the country's sovereignty by the United States in its raid on Osama bin Laden's compound earlier this month.

    pass = approve

    compound = courtyard/ complex

    It seems perfect to me
