Osama Bin Laden Net Worth

Osama Bin Laden net worth:
$50 Million

Osama Bin Laden Net Worth: Osama Bin Laden was a Saudi Arabian terrorist leader who had a net worth of $50 million. Osama Bin Laden obtained his net worth possibly through his inheritance from his father. Born as Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden (March 10, 1957– May 2, 2011) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, he made a name for himself for all the wrong reasons. Bin Laden was the man who founded al-Qaeda, the Sunni militant Islamist organization that assumed responsibility for the September 11 attacks on the United States, among many other terrorist, mass-casualty attacks against both civilian and military targets. The son of the Saudi Arabian billionaire Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, he had the chance to study at elite secular high-school and to attend King Abdulaziz University, where he took economics and business administration. According to some reports, he has even earned a degree in civil engineering in 1979, and a degree in public administration in 1981. While still at college, Bin Laden joined the mujahideen forces in Pakistan against the Soviets in Afghanistan. Thus, he was instrumental in funding the mujahideen with arms, money and fighters that he funneled from the Arab world into Afghanistan. Having gained popularity among Arabs, he formed al-Qaeda in 1988. Bin Laden got banished from his native Saudi Arabia in 1992, and he moved his base to Sudan. But in 1996, US forced him to leave Sudan and he had to locate his base elsewhere. After he set up a new base in Afghanistan, he started a war against US, initiating a series of terrorist attacks, including the 1998 US embassy bombings. This made him enter the FBI’s lists of Ten Most Wanted Fugitives and Most Wanted Terrorists. Eventually, he became the major target of the War on Terror and FBI placed a bounty worth $25 million on him. It was on May 2, 2011, when bin Laden was shot dead inside a private residential compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, by members of the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group and Central Intelligence Agency operatives in a secret operation delegated by the US President Barack Obama.
