WH: bin Laden Son Killed in US Opps    09/14 09:04

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

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says Hamza bin Laden, the son of the late 
al-Qaida leader who had become an increasingly prominent figure in the 
terrorist organization, has been killed in a U.S. counterterrorism operation in 
the Afghanistan-Pakistan region.

   A White House statement gives no further details, such as when Hamza bin 
Laden was killed or how the United States confirmed his death.

   The statement says Hamza bin Laden's death "not only deprives al-Qaida of 
important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father, but 
undermines important operational activities of the group."

   As leader of al-Qaida, Osama bin Laden and others plotted the attacks of 
Sept. 11, 2001. U.S. Navy SEALs killed him in a raid on a house in Abbottabad, 
Pakistan, in 2011.
