Osama listed as ‘deceased’: FBI updates ‘Most Wanted’ list

Font Size:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has updated its list of “Most Wanted Terrorists” now that the American military has eliminated the head of the Al Qaeda Hydra, Osama Bin Laden.

Osama was killed on Sunday, and by Monday morning the FBI website had listed the al Qaeda leader, and formerly most wanted terrorist, as “Deceased.” Despite his demise, Bin Laden continues to hold the No. 1 most wanted man distinction.

Twenty-nine living terrorists remain on the FBI’s Most Wanted List.

American-born Adam Yahiye Gadahn is the second “Most Wanted Terrorist.” Gadahn faces charges of treason and terrorism. In the No. 3 slot is another American, Daniel Andreas, who is wanted for the 2003 bombing of two office buildings in the San Francisco area and his participation with extremist animal rights groups.

Bin Laden’s second-in-command, Ayman Al-Zawahiri, is No. 4 on the FBI’s list. The bureau is offering $25 million for his capture.
