US officials said on Wednesday that Osama bin Laden's hand-written journal which was filled with planning ideas and details of operations, was seized in the dramatic US raid that killed him.

The journal was part of a huge cache of intelligence that included about 100 flash drives and five computers taken by a US Navy Seals assault team after they swept through bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad. US officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk publicly about what was found in bin Laden's hideout.

Bin Laden has long been known to record his thoughts and had been thought to keep a diary. His son, in a memoir, stated that his father was very dedicated to recording his thoughts and plans.
