ONE DOWN...:

Osama bin Laden son 'probably killed in US drone attack': Saad bin Laden was not targeted, but likely to have been in wrong place at wrong time, US intelligence report claims (Declan Walsh, 7/23/09, guardian.co.uk)

One of Osama bin Laden's sons was probably killed in a US drone strike on a target in Pakistan's tribal areas earlier this year, according to a US report.

Saad bin Laden, who was in his late 20s, is believed to have been hit by a Hellfire missile fired by a CIA-operated Predator unmanned aircraft. [...]

Bin Laden, who is believed to be sheltering along the mountainous tribal belt along the Afghan border, is believed to have at least 12 sons. While some returned to Saudi Arabia, at least six – including Saad – stayed at his side to fight.
