London, Apr 16(ANI): Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is reportedly using social networking website Facebook as a platform to show videos and speeches to Islamic militants.

According to reports, Osama has a page named "The leader of the Mujahideen, Osama bin Laden" and his address is given as "the mountains of the world".

Following the revelation, security experts have urged Facebook's US office to shut down the page.

The account became active less than a month ago, but had already attracted nearly 1,000 extremists, and although the language used is Arabic, messages in English have started to appear, The Sun reports.

Internet terror expert and author Neil Doyle said: "Bin Laden, via his supporters, is clearly taunting his pursuers."

Since 2001, Osama and his organization have been major targets of the United States' War on Terror.

There is a 16 million pound reward for his capture, and he along with other Al-Qaeda leaders are believed to be hiding near the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas. (ANI)
