Osama Bin Laden's Sister and Stepmother dead in UK plane crash
LONDON: A private jet belonging to the Bin Laden family, carrying three passengers and a pilot, crashed in southern England on Friday killing all on board, a spokesperson for Britain’s Hampshire police service said.
British media said the plane was registered in Saudi Arabia and had originated in Milan, Italy. Reuters was not immediately able to confirm that information.
Unconfirmed British media reports said the plane had been carrying family members of al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, who was shot dead by US forces in Pakistan in 2011.
A spokesperson for the British police told Reuters: “There were no survivors unfortunately. There were four people onboard including the pilot.”
Further investigations into the identities of the passengers and the exact cause of the crash are underway.
