England A British woman said Wednesday she has married Omar bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader's fourth son, after they met in Egypt last fall.
Jane Felix-Browne, a 51-year-old grandmother from Moulton in northwestern England, said that she met bin Laden, 27, while riding a horse near Egypt's Great Pyramid and they married on April 24.
The Times and Sun newspapers, which initially reported the story, said she was in Egypt for medical treatment for multiple sclerosis at the time.
Felix-Browne confirmed that and said she was returning to Egypt this weekend for further treatment. She said she won't meet her husband there but they talk each day via the Internet.
The couple has had Islamic marriage ceremonies in both Egypt and Saudi Arabia, Felix-Browne said. She said she is his second wife - Islam allows men to have up to four wives.
There was no independent confirmation of her claim that they two had married or that he was indeed Osama bin Laden's son.
