Kuwait City: Al Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden did not want his children to join the terrorist organisation, the Kuwait-based Al-Anbaa newspaper said citing his 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 to not remarry.
He prohibited his children from taking part in his terrorist organisation and from "going to the front", the newspaper said.
Osama apologised to his children for the lack of time he spent with them due to his devotion to Jihad.
Various reports say bin Laden fathered between 12 and 26 children and married four women.
Bin Laden, believed to be 54 years of age, was killed in Pakistan by US special forces.
