Osama bin Laden

Osama bin Laden was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in 1957. He was the son of a wealthy construction magnate and grew up in luxury. After studying economics and management in college, bin Laden joined the Afghan resistance against Soviet forces in the 1980s. He formed his own militant group, Al-Qaeda, in 1988, aiming to fight against Western influence in the Middle East.

His most infamous act was the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, which killed nearly 3,000 people.
