In audio released online, Osama’s son says Al-Qaeda will continue waging jihad, or holy war, against the U.S. in response to its “oppression” of Muslims. “If you think that your sinful crime that you committed in Abbottabad has passed without punishment, then you thought wrong,” he says.
Osama bin Laden was killed in a May 2011 U.S. raid at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, after a nearly decade-long manhunt. Osama was 54 and his body was buried at sea. Currently, “his son’s whereabouts is not known,” CBS News reports. Analysts speculate that he may be preparing to take over leadership of Al Qaeda. Reports from Osama’s widows say at the time of Osama’s death, Hamza escaped amid confusion following the raid on his compound.
“Hamza is the youngest of bin Laden’s surviving children. Reports differ, but bin Laden is suspected of having fathered around 20 or so children,” the news outlet mentions.
President Obama confirmed the death during a press conference late on May 1. “For over two decades, Bin Laden has been Al Qaeda’s leader and symbol,” President Obama said. “The death of bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date in our nation’s effort to defeat Al Qaeda. But his death does not mark the end of our effort. We must and we will remain vigilant at home and abroad,” he said.
