Family members in the bin laden have expressed fear that slain Al Qaeda leader’s son Hamza Bin Laden is following in the footsteps of his father Osama Bin Laden and he could have assumed a leadership position in the Al Qaeda.
In a more shocking revelation, Hamza Osama is said to have married Mohammed Atta’s daughter, the orchestrator of the 9/11 attack on the United States that saw 2,996 killed and about 6,000 injured.
The marriage was confirmed by Osama bin Laden’s half-brothers – Ahmad and Hassan al-Attas – during an interview with the Guardian. “We have heard he has married the daughter of Mohammed Atta,” Ahmad al-Attas told the daily. “We’re not sure where he is, but it could be Afghanistan.”
The brothers said they believed Hamza had taken a senior position within Al Qaida and was aiming to avenge the death of his father who was shot dead during a US military raid in Pakistan’s Abbottabad town on May 2, 2011.
Hamza is the son of one of Osama bin Laden’s three surviving wives, Khairiah Sabar, who was living with her husband in Abbottabad when he was killed.
He has since made public statements urging followers to wage war on the US, the UK, France, and Israel and is seen as a deputy to the terrorist group’s incumbent leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri
