Bin Laden son ‘to sue for dad death’
www.thesun.co.uk — OSAMA Bin Laden’s son Omar was last night preparing to take the US to court over his dad’s “criminal” death – using BRITISH lawyers, it is claimed.
In an apparent open letter from Omar published on an Islamist website he says that his father’s burial at sea had humiliated his family.
The warlord’s fourth oldest son apparently adds he and his brothers and sisters reserve the right to take legal action against the United States to “determine the true fate of our vanished father”.
There was no independent confirmation of the authenticity of the letter, published on the website of extremist Abu Walid al-Masri, although several specialists on militant propaganda said the text appeared genuine.
The news came as it emerged last night that Bin Laden’s youngest son was believed to be on the run – and may be plotting revenge.
Hamza Bin Laden, 20, was being groomed to succeed his terror boss father as head of al-Qaeda.
US forces thought they had eliminated him in their raid on Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan. But it later emerged that he had been confused with his brother Khalid, 22.
Hamza was dubbed the Crown Prince of Terror after appearing in a jihadist film clutching a rifle aged just 15.
Meanwhile, Bin Laden’s deputy will join fiend Anwar al-Awlaki to form the new high command of al-Qaeda.
Egyptian Ayman al-Zawahiri, 59, is expected to be named as its leader.
But experts predict he will use the organisation’s US-born rising “star” Awlaki, 40 – who is hiding out in Yemen – to hold the wobbling terror network together.
Al-Qaeda last night warned Americans they will “pay the price” for Bin Laden’s death – saying his killing was a “big mistake, a serious sin”.
An online message said they would make the US “forget the pleasure of its happiness and make it cry blood”.
