WASHINGTON - In his last will and testament, al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden claimed he had about $29 million in personal wealth - the bulk of which he wanted to be used "on jihad."

The will was released Tuesday in a batch of more than 100 documents seized in a May 2011 raid that killed bin Laden at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. 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 Sept. 11 attacks.

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

The first materials were released in May 2015. Among that trove was a list of what was on bin Laden's bookshelf when Navy SEALS raided his compound, as well as an al Qaeda job application.
