Jamaica lists Hamza Bin Laden as a terrorist

Jamaica has joined other countries in listing Osama Bin Laden's son, Hamza Bin Laden, as a terrorist.
 
The 30-year-old is seen as an emerging leader of Al-Qai­da, the Is­lamist mil­i­tant group his late fa­ther once led.
 
An order from the Supreme Court of Jamaica says Mr. Bin Laden will be added as a terrorist based on the Terrorism Prevention Act.
 
The order was made last week. 
 
Trinidad and Tobago has also or­dered that Hamza Bin Laden be named a ter­ror­ist in that coun­try and all his as­sets frozen.
 
On March 1, At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Faris Al-Rawi filed the mat­ter in the High Court in ac­cor­dance with the An­ti-Ter­ror­ism Act.
 
On the same day, Sau­di Ara­bia an­nounced that it had re­voked Bin Laden's cit­i­zen­ship.
 
The Unit­ed States is of­fer­ing US$1 mil­lion for in­for­ma­tion on Bin Laden's where­abouts.
