Washington, Mar 1: In his last will and testament, al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden claimed he had about USD 29 million in personal wealth - most of which he wanted to be used "on jihad, for the sake of Allah."

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

Bin Laden wanted to use fortune on jihad

The al Qaeda leader planned to divide his fortune among his relatives, but wanted most of it spent to conduct the work of the Islamic extremist terror network behind the September 11, 2001 attacks.

The documents were declassified and made public after a lengthy review by government agencies.
