The Colorado construction worker who flew last year to Pakistan on a one-man mission to hunt down Osama bin Laden says he played a part in bin Laden's death.

Gary Faulkner said early today (NZ time) he'd like one-quarter of the US$25 million (NZ$31.6m) reward that was offered for hunting down bin Laden. He said he'd use it for his non-profit foundation.

Faulkner was found last year in the woods of northern Pakistan armed with a pistol, sword and night-vision goggles. The Greeley, Colorado, man says he believes he had a hand in forcing bin Laden out of the mountains where he supposedly was hiding.

Bin Laden was killed at a compound in northwestern Pakistan early Monday. US officials say he had been living there for up to six years.
