US receives threat from Bin Laden's son

Hamza, Osama bin Laden's son has been reported to be seeking vengence for his father’s death and is ready to become the new leader of Al Qaeda.

Hamza, is set on avenging his father’s death, Ali Soufan, a former FBI agent, told CBS News in an interview that will air Sunday according to Personal letters seized in the raid that killed bin Laden.

“He tells him that…he remembers ‘every look…every smile you gave me, every word you told me,” Soufan said about bin Laden’s son. Soufan also told CBS News that Hamza wrote that he considers himself “to be forged in steel.”

Hamza’s choice to become the head of the terrorist organisation was born years ago when he was used as a propaganda tool in bin Laden’s videos Soufan mentioned. He sometimes used to be seen holding a gun.

He has even started talking like his father the agent further added.

“His recent message that came out, he delivered the speech as if it’s his father, using sentences, terminology that was used by Osama bin Laden,” Soufan said.

Hamza is believed to be about 28 years old and has been named as a “specially designated global terrorist” by the U.S., as he has recorded four audio messages in the last two years, aimed at the U.S.

“He’s basically saying, ‘American people, we’re coming and you’re going to feel it,” Soufan said.

“And we’re going to take revenge for what you did to my father. Iraq, Afghanistan’. The whole thing was about vengeance.”
