According to FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list, a $25 million bounty will be given to anyone who could give information leading directly to the apprehension or conviction of Osama bin Laden. An additional $2 million is also being offered from the Airline Pilots Association and the Air Transport Association (ATA).

Today, reports said that these rewards may not be claimed. As reported by the Daily Telegraph, it is unclear whether or not the $25 million bounty and the additional $2 million will be paid to those responsible for killing bin Laden.

Harry Edwards, State Department’s spokesperson reportedly said that the government usually does not discuss nominations for awards. He also said that $25 million is the maximum reward and not the minimum.

“Given the importance of confidentiality … we can’t comment on whether or not anyone’s been nominated for a reward”, Heide Fulton, a spokeswoman of State Department was quoted saying.

Meanwhile, Steve Lott, a spokesman for the ATA reportedly said that their organization has not received a formal request for the reward money.

Scott Cleere, whose father died during the 9/11 attack said that he would like to see if the Navy Seal Team 6 will get the reward. “And I would hope that they do because they do deserve it,” Cleere reportedly said.
