US Offers $1 Million Reward For Osama Bin Laden's Son Hamza
The citizenship of Hamza bin Laden has been revoked by Saudi Arabia authorities after the United States offered a reward of up to $1 million (£756,000) for information relating to Osama bin Laden's son. Hamza is believed to be based near to the Afghan-Pakistani border and is said to be an emerging leader of the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda. His father Osama masterminded the 9/11 attacks in 2001 which killed 3,000 people when a series of four passenger airliners were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists. Osama bin Laden was killed in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, during a US military raid 10 years later. Following his death, Hamza released audio and video messages calling on supporters to attack the US in revenge.
