British divorcee reportedly marries bin Laden son

LONDON (AP) -- Wedding bells in the bin Laden family.

Omar bin Laden, Osama's 27-year-old son, has married a 51-year-old British grandmother.

The report being carried by British newspapers is confirmed by colleagues of Jane Felix-Browne.

She's told newspapers that she and bin Laden's fourth son met while she was horse riding near the pyramids in Egypt and fell in love. They were married in ceremonies in Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

She says, "To me, he is just Omar."

She also says her husband has not seen his notorious father since 2000.

Felix-Brown hopes he'll be able to join her in Britain, but says because of his last name, quote, "he finds it very difficult to travel anywhere."
