The death of Osama bin Laden has made worldwide headlines, as the number one man on the F.B.I.’s most wanted list has now been killed. As we face the aftermath of Bin Laden’s death, it is vital to track how the world’s most sought after man came to be.
From being the 17th child of 52 children fathered by Muhammad Awad bin Laden, a Yemeni immigrant who built a billion-dollar construction company in Saudi Arabia, to forming al Qaeda in 1988, a group that carries out terrorist attacks, Bin Laden's name is synonymous with anti-Americanism.
Bin Laden became infamous after he ordered the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and since then, his name has been etched in the minds of people affected by his terror.
Today we will track the life and times of the most wanted man in the world.
