Original Message Osama bin Laden's 16-year-old son led a suicide bomb squad sent to kill Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto, according to her own claims.

Before she was assassinated in December the former prime minister claimed she had been warned that four such death teams would try to kill her.

And the naming of bin Laden's teenage son, Hamza, could now strengthen claims that he is being groomed as a future leader of the al Qaeda terror group.

In 2001, he appeared in a joint Taliban and al Qaeda video of a militant attack on a Pakistan army camp in South Waziristan, near the Afghan border.

In September, he was described in reports as a senior al Qaeda leader who had been waging a jihad, or holy war, in lawless tribal areas.

In excerpts published from her autobiography, Ms Bhutto said the other people who sent squads were "Taliban warlord Baitullah Mehsud, Red Mosque militants and a Karachi-based militant group".

She claimed the information on plans to murder her had come from Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf and a "foreign Muslim government".

Ms Bhutto also wrote about the suicide bomb attack on her motorcade in Karachi when she returned home in October.

She said it may have been carried out by a would-be assassin who lined the clothes of a toddler with plastic explosives to turn the child into a bomb.

She says a man gestured to her to hold the child, before trying to hand it to police in a nearby van, which exploded soon after.
