Bin Laden son’s death con­firmed, White House says

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

The White House an­nounced Saturday that Hamza bin Laden, the son of the late al-Qaida leader who had be­come an in­creas­ingly prom­i­nent fig­ure in the ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion, was killed in a U.S. coun­tert­er­ror­ism op­er­a­tion in the Afghanista­n-Pak­istan re­gion.

A state­ment is­sued in Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s name gave no fur­ther de­tails, such as when Hamza bin Laden was killed or how the United States had con­firmed his death. Ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fi­cials would give no de­tails. Amer­i­can of­fi­cials have said there are in­di­ca­tions that the CIA, not the U.S. mil­i­tary, con­ducted the strike.
