The United States has obtained intelligence that the son and potential successor of Osama bin Laden - the former leader of al-Qaeda - is dead.

The officials would not provide details of where or when Hamza bin Laden died, or if the US played a role in his death. The officials wouldn't confirm how or where he died or if the U.S. government played any role in his death.

Asked whether Hamza bin Laden was dead, Donald Trump, the United States president, said: "I don't want to comment on it".

The statement read: "The Justice Program is offering a reward of up to $1 million for information leading to the identification or location in any country of AQ key leader Hamza bin Laden".

In February, a $1 million reward was offered by the State Department for information about his whereabouts.

The White House did not immediately issue a comment on the matter.

This is why it is best to avoid jewellery that will draw unwanted attention and take away the focus from what you are presenting. A delicate diamond ring, a simple platinum or gold band looks great and works well with both Indian as well as western outfits.

Hamza bin Laden, who has been in hiding since 2011, released a public statement in 2018 calling for the Arabian Peninsula to rise and overthrow their respective governments, specifically calling out Saudi Arabia.

Ten days before the Manchester bombing in 2017, Hamza's voice was heard on an audio recording released by Al-Qaida which called for its supports to strike against "Jews" and "Crusaders".

It came after he called for attacks against US, French and Israeli interests in 2015, as well as acts of terrorism in western capitals on behalf of Al-Qaida, according to the United Nations security council.

USA forces also found a video of the wedding of Hamza, who was thought to have been 30, to the daughter of another senior Al-Qaeda official that is believed to have taken place in Iran.

Navy SEALS killed his father in 2011 during a raid on his Abbottabad, Pakistan, compound. Hamza was not found at the compound. Hamza was also reportedly married to the daughter of a senior al-Qaeda leader, Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, who operates under the alias Abu Muhammad al Masri.

Hamza appeared in several propaganda videos for the terrorist group.
