US Offers $1M Reward for Bin Laden’s Son; Saudi Arabia Revokes Citizenship for Hazma Bin Laden
WASHINGTON – Saudi Arabia revoked citizenship for Osama Bin Laden’s son Friday, less than a day after the U.S. State Department put a $1 million bounty on his head, Reuters reports.
The U.S. offered the reward for information leading “to the identification or location in any country” of Hazma Bin Laden, who is thought to have succeeded his father as a top al Qaida leader. The U.S. Departments of State and Defense have maintained a long campaign against al Qaida internationally, foiling terror plots and striking exposed leaders.
“Over the next several weeks, [the suspect] continued to express his radical ideology and his desire to commit violence against the United States,” The FBI said of the would-be bomber. “Just last week, during an in-person meeting with an undercover agent, [the suspect] suggested words to the effect, ‘I did tell myself that their holiday is coming up … what would hit them in the core? Blow up a bomb. Blow up a Fourth of July parade.’”
