The handwritten will of Osama bin Laden has revealed the former Al Qaeda leader had about 29 million US dollars in personal wealth – which he wanted to be used to fund jihad.

The will was released today in a batch of more than 100 documents seized during the May 2011 raid that killed bin Laden at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

The documents were released by the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

A report by BBC News says that although Bin Laden referred to the money as being in Sudan, it is not clear whether it was in the form of cash or assets, or whether any of it made its way to his heirs.
