Bin Laden reward doubled
The US House of Representatives has voted unanimously to double the reward for Osama bin Laden's capture to $US50 million ($67.5 million).
The move came in connection with a broader bill that expanded the State Department's anti-terrorist rewards program to provide cash and other benefits for those helping authorities track down drug traffickers who back terrorist activities.
The bill, which was passed 414-0 on Thursday, now goes to the Senate. Kathryn Harris, a Florida Republican, said it recognised the growing link between the drug trade and the financing of terrorist activities.
