Bin Laden daughter-in-law wants peace
by UPI

LONDON -- Osama bin Laden's new British daughter-in-law said she hopes to use her position to promote peace in the Middle East.

Jane Felix-Browne and her husband, Omar Ossama bin Laden, a scrap dealer in Jeddah more than 20 years her junior, are at least temporarily separated, The Times of London reported. Felix-Browne doesn't have a visa for Saudi Arabia and the Saudi government is holding her husband's passport.

"If I can do anything because of who I am married to and try to end some of the fighting in the world then I will do it," she told The Times. "Omar trusts me and has supported me is speaking publicly about our marriage and about our plans to campaign for peace. I know a lot about Middle East politics and believe there should be peace in the whole of the world, the same as Omar."

She said that her husband hasn't seen his father for seven years, the newspaper said.

Felix-Browne is a parish counselor in Moulton, Cheshire. She met her husband while on vacation and married him in April.
