Kuwait City: Osama bin Laden, who was killed by US forces, didn’t want his children to be like him and join the terrorist organisation Al Qaeda.

A Kuwait-based newspaper cited Osama’s last will and testament.

In a four-page document dated Dec 14, 2001, written on a computer and signed "Your Brother Abu Abdullah Osama Muhammad Bin Laden," the late Al Qaeda leader predicted he would be killed as a result of a "betrayal" and ordered his wives not to remarry.

He prohibited his children from taking part in his terrorist organisation and from "going to the front", the newspaper stated.

Laden apologised to his children for the lack of time he spent with them due to his devotion to Jihad. According to various reports bin Laden fathered between 12 and 26 children and married four women.
