US offers $1m reward to find Osama Bin Laden’s son
The United States on Thursday offered a $1 million reward for information on a son of late Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, seeing him as an emerging leader of the extremist network.
The location of Hamza bin Laden, sometimes dubbed the “crown prince of jihad,” has been the subject of speculation for years with reports of him in Pakistan, Afghanistan or under house arrest in Iran.
Hamza is the son of one of Osama’s three surviving wives, Khairiah Sabar, who was living with her husband in a compound in Abbottabad.
Western intelligence agencies have been increasingly focusing on the whereabouts of Hamza over the past two years, seeing him as more likely than anyone else to galvanise followers.
