Former al-Qaeda leader and world's most-wanted man Osama bin Laden's computer files have been made public, and available for downloading.

The 9/11 mastermind hoarded various games, viral videos, animal photos, crochet tutorials and children's films on his hard drive.

Bin Laden, known to be a family man and a father to 23 children, had the likes of Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Chicken Little, Cars, Antz and Batman: Gotham Knight, on his computer, as well as videos entitled How_to_Crochet_a_Basket.flv and buzzlightyear.Ep12.rmvb.

He also had a movie about himself, Morgan Spurlock's 2008 documentary Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden?, stored on his hard drive - as well as a number of innocent PowerPoint presentations about animals.

He also had a video file of one of YouTube's first viral clips, 'Charlie Bit My Finger'.

Among the files was also the kind of sinister material most would expect from the man who was once the most-feared terrorist on the planet.

Videos showing beheadings, gunfights and suicide bombings featured, as well a PowerPoint presentation which, using Microsofts' ClipArt function, appeared to demonstrate the 9/11 attacks.
