Bin Laden son in Spain asylum bid
One of Osama Bin Laden's sons, who no longer has any contact with his father and has declared himself a pacifist, is seeking political asylum in Spain. He has already been refused entry to the UK.
One of Osama Bin Laden's sons has asked for political asylum in Spain, local officials say.
Omar Osama Bin Laden, aged 27, made his claim after a scheduled stopover at Madrid's Barajas airport on a flight from Egypt to Morocco.
The reasons for his asylum request were not immediately clear.
The self-declared pacifist son of the al-Qaeda leader was earlier this year refused entry to live in the UK with his 52-year-old British wife.
