US PUTS $1M BOUNTY ON BIN LADEN'S SON

The United States on Thursday offered a $1 million reward for information on a son of late Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, seeing him as an emerging face of extremism.

The location of Hamza bin Laden, sometimes dubbed the "crown prince of jihad," has been the subject of speculation for years with reports of him living in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria or under house arrest in Iran.

"Hamza bin Laden is the son of deceased former AQ leader Osama bin Laden and is emerging as a leader in the AQ franchise," a State Department statement said, referring to Al-Qaeda.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has stripped citizenship from Hamza bin Laden, the interior ministry said in a statement published by the official gazette Umm Al Qura.
