WASHINGTON: US Intelligence officials said the son of al-Qaeda founder Osama Bin Laden, Hamza, has died.

Details of Hamza Bin Laden’s place or date of death remain unclear in the anonymously-sourced reports.

In February, the US government offered USD 1 million for information leading to his whereabouts.

Hamza Bin Laden, thought to be aged about 30, had released audio and video messages calling for attacks on the US and other countries.

US President Donald Trump, however, refused to comment on the issue when asked by reporters on Wednesday.

Hamza Bin Laden urged jihadists to avenge his father’s killing by US special forces in Pakistan in May 2011.

He had also called on the people of the Arabian peninsula to revolt. Saudi Arabia stripped him of his citizenship in March.
