BEIRUT (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia has stripped citizenship from Hamza bin Laden, the son of slain al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, the interior ministry said in a statement published by the official gazette Umm Al Qura.

The U.S. State Department said on Thursday it was offering a reward of up to $1 million (£755,515) for information leading "to the identification or location in any country" of Hamza, calling him a key al Qaeda leader.
