Hamza bin laden, osama bin laden's son urges a holy war on the US

Al-Qaeda have released a message from the son of Osama Bin Laden, Hamza Bin Laden, in his first public address. 

In the audio recording, Hamza urges al-Qaeda supporters to attack the US and its allies.

BBC News reports:

Osama Bin Laden was killed by US special forces in 2011 in a raid on his compound in Abbotabad, Pakistan.

The group has since been led by al-Qaeda’s former second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Hamza Bin Laden’s whereabouts are not known. He is believed to be in his mid-twenties.

During the US-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, the Al-Jazeera network broadcast footage that appeared to show him among Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

His audio message, released on an al-Qaeda website, calls upon followers in Kabul, Baghdad and Gaza to wage jihad, or holy war, on Washington, London, Paris and Tel Aviv.
