from Sputnik News:
Video footage released by the CIA as part of a trove of material found at al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s hideout provides a glimpse into the family life of the architect of the 9/11 attacks.
The videos were seized from the Abbottabad compound in Pakistan after United States Navy SEALs stormed it and killed bin Laden in May 2011.
One of the videos shows bin Laden’s children and grandchildren, which gives the impression of a pretty normal family despite his status as the most dangerous terrorist on the planet.
The children can be seen frolicking about indoors and playing on swings and a slide in the courtyard.
Another video offers never-before-seen footage of bin Laden’s son Hamza bin Ladenas an adult. Previously, only childhood pictures of him have circulated.
The young man, who many believe to be his father’s potential successor, is seen on his wedding day. Hamza is believed to be alive and active in Pakistan.
The videos were included in Wednesday’s release by the CIA of nearly 470,000 files found on Osama’s personal computer.
“In an effort to further enhance public understanding of [al-Qaeda], the Central Intelligence Agency on 1 November 2017 released additional materials recovered in the raid on [Osama bin Laden’s] compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan,” the agency said in a statement on Wednesday.
