State Department Offers $1M For Location Of Osama Bin Laden's Son
The State Department is offering up to $1 million to anyone who can provide actionable information about Hamza bin Laden.
The U.S. Department of State is offering a reward of up to $1 million for anyone who can provide information leading to the whereabouts of one of former Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's sons.
On Thursday, the department said Hamza bin Laden is "emerging as a leader" of the terrorist organization. A letter seized from Osama bin Laden's compound suggest he may have been "grooming" his son to replace him.
Hamza bin Laden was officially announced as a member of Al-Qaeda in 2015. And in 2016, he released an audio message calling for Syrian jihadists to take action to liberate Palestine. That same year, he released an audio message, titled "We Are All Osama," that threatened revenge against the United States after the death of his father.
The State Department labeled Hamza bin Laden a specially designated global terrorist in 2017. Individuals on this list are said to pose a serious threat to Americans and U.S. national security.
He is now believed to be between the ages of 30 and 33.
