osama’s new daughter-in-law questions 9/11 involvement

osama bin laden's new daughter-in-law questions 9/11from new kerala: Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s new English daughter-in-law has disputed his involvement in the infamous 9/11 attacks in New York.

Parish councillor Jane Felix-Browne, who married bin Laden’s son Omar in April this year, yesterday went to extraordinary lengths to defend her new father-in-law, even calling into question whether he was behind the terrorist attacks in America.

“It would be nice to meet Osama bin Laden, the head of al-Qaeda, to ask him about the 2001 terrorist attacks. I think it would be very interesting to find out if he really did it or not. That would be the question because I think it is a doubt on everybody’s mind,” she said.

The five-time married Felix-Browne (51), who has three sons and five grandchildren, met the 26-year-old Omar while on a holiday in Egypt last September and immediately fell for him. They married in April in Cairo but have spent only three weeks together since.

She said she had applied for a visa for him to visit but admitted she had no firm plans as to when she would see him again.

Mrs Felix-Browne, who also goes by the Islamic name Zaina Mohammad Al-Sabah, said she wasn’t about to adopt his family name, “because its not the tradition… If it wasn’t against tradition I would take his name… I’m not ashamed of it but I don’t think it would go down well at the airport.”

Defending her sixth marriage with someone who is just half her age, she said: “It’s a really happy thing and it wasn’t a holiday romance. I know there’s an age difference. I’m a 51-year-old woman but I do not look like his mother… After I met him I spoke to him between seven and 16 hours a day every day for the past 10 months,” she added, insisting that, unlike her other marriages, this one would last.

Calling herself Lady Felix-Browne, even though there is no apparent link to the title, she has a penchant for tattoos and flash cars and spends several weeks of the year abroad indulging in her passion for horses and scuba diving. She speaks fluent Arabic and drives a white Jaguar with Egyptian number plates.

Omar already has a wife he lives with.
