Osama's son-in-law detained in Turkey

Osama's son-in-law detained in Turkey

KABUL (PAN): Former Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden's son-in-law has been detained by Turkish forces in Ankara city after the US allegedly informed Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MİT) about his location, a newspaper reported on Friday.

Suleyman M., son-in-law of Osama Bin Laden, was allegedly staying at a camp in Iran after the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center in 2001.

He entered Turkey using a fake Saudi Arabian passport, the daily Milliyet said, claiming the United States learned Suleyman M. was in Ankara and informed MİT. Turkish security forces captured him at a hotel in Çankaya district of Ankara.

Osama was killed by US Navy SEALS at his compound in Pakistan's Abbotabab city on May 4, 2011. Kuwait revoked Suleyman M.’s citizenship after the US issued an arrest warrant for him on charges of involvement in terrorist activities.

A Turkish court decided to release Suleyman M. on the grounds that he had not committed any crimes other than entering the country with a fake passport. However, he was not released and was returned to the police department for extradition from the country.

The daily also said Suleyman M. would be extradited back to Iran. The US reportedly asked Turkey to give Suleyman M. to it for interrogation on alleged Al Qaeda activities.
