US Offers $1 Million Reward In Hunt For Bin Laden’s Son

The U.S. government wants to capture the son of late terrorist leader Osama bin Laden and they’re offering $1 million to help track him down!

A State Department notice was shared on Thursday and it says the reward will be paid for help locating Hamza bin Laden in any country as part of its “rewards for justice” program. It was noted that the sudden urge came after Laden’s son emerged as a leader of the al-Qaida terrorist group.

Hamza bin Laden was named a “specially designated global terrorist” in January 2017, according to the news release from the State Department. Since 2015,

“He has released audio and video messages on the Internet, calling on his followers to launch attacks against the United States and its Western allies, and he has threatened attacks against the United States in revenge for the May 2011 killing of his father by U.S. military forces,” the State Department said.”

While the U.N. said there is little evidence currently of a direct global threat from Al Qaeda, “improved leadership and enhanced communication will probably increase the threat over time, as will any rise in the tendency, already visible in some regions, of ISIL supporters to join Al Qaeda.”

As previously reported, Hamza bin Laden’s father was killed in a U.S. military raid in Pakistan in May 2011. He was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people and injured over 6,000.

The Thursday notice also left instructions and more information about these reward offers on the Rewards for Justice website at www.rewardsforjustice.net.

“We encourage anyone with information on this individual to contact the Rewards for Justice office via the website, e-mail (info@rewardsforjustice.net), phone (1-800-877-3927 in North America), or mail (Rewards for Justice, Washington, D.C., 20520-0303, USA). All information will be kept strictly confidential.”
