One official tells CBS News bin Laden is believed to have been killed in a military operation, although he was not the target of the operation and was not even known to be at that location. Since then, reports placed him in Syria, as well as in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border region, according to the newspaper.
Earlier today President Trump declined to comment on an NBC News report that the US had information about bin Laden's death.
US Navy SEALS killed Osama bin Laden in 2011 during a raid on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
Hamza Bin Laden, thought to be aged about 30, had released audio and video messages calling for attacks on the United States and other countries.
Bank of Canada unlikely to follow any Fed interest rate cut
The Fed has held the interest rate steady in its prior announcements this year after raising the interest rate four times in 2018. Currently, traders are pricing in a 77 percent chance of a second quarter-percent cut during the FOMC's September meeting.
Western intelligence agencies saw Hamza as a threat as he started appearing on their radar as a key figure in the post-Osama Al-Qaida hierarchy. "I don't want to comment on that", he said when asked by reporters to confirm Hamza's death.
Hamza bin Laden, who has been in hiding since 2011, released a public statement in 2018 calling for the Arabian Peninsula to rise and overthrow their respective governments, specifically calling out Saudi Arabia.
Donald Trump was asked by reporters on Wednesday whether the U.S. had intelligence that Hamza bin Laden was dead, to which the United States president replied: "I don't want to comment on that". Hamza was not found at the compound.
Documents seized in the raid on his father's house in Abbottabad suggested Hamza was being groomed as heir to the Al-Qaeda leadership.
Introduced by al Qaeda's chief Ayman al-Zawahiri in an audio message in 2015, Hamza provides a younger voice for the group whose aging leaders have struggled to inspire militants around the world galvanized by Islamic State, analysts say.
