Osama bin Laden’s son and potential successor of terrorist group al-Qaeda is dead, according to three US officials.

The officials have not revealed where or when Hamza bin Laden died or if the US had anything to do with his death, according to NBC News.

US President Donald Trump told reporters: “I don’t want to comment on that,” when asked on Wednesday about the reports.
