Hamza bin Laden has been killed, the White House says.

The son of Osama bin Laden has been killed in a US counter-terrorism operation, President Donald Trump has confirmed.

A statement from the White House said: "Hamza bin Laden, the high-ranking al Qaeda member and son of Osama bin Laden, was killed in a United States counter-terrorism operation in the Afghanistan/Pakistan region.

"The loss of Hamza bin Laden not only deprives al Qaeda of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father, but undermines important operational activities of the group.

"Hamza bin Laden was responsible for planning and dealing with various terrorist groups.".

Hamza is believed to be about 30 and is the 15th of Osama bin Laden's 56 children.

Former al Qaeda leader Osama was killed in a US special forces raid in 2011. »
