Osama’s widow wishes asylum in BritainApril 19th, 2012 - 10:22 pm ICT by IANS
London, April 19 (IANS) Slain Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden’s youngest widow wishes to spend her life in Britain with her five children and meet the Royal Family, The Sun reported Thursday.
Amal Abdulfattah al-Sadah, 29, wed Osama at the age of 17 as she wanted a “holy warrior” husband, supported his war on the West and went on the run with him after 9/11.
In records of interviews with Pakistan intelligence officers - obtained by The Sun - Al-Sadah praised the Royal Family and the British.
She said: “I believe the UK people and the government are more polite and friendly than US people. I am sure they believe in peace more than military actions. I would love to meet the UK Royal Family.
“They have a huge attraction and they always work for peace. Britain’s elected government is a little inclined to the US but the Royal Family is always doing good works.”
Al-Sadah also revealed having five children from Osama while on the run after 9/11.
She was wounded in the leg trying to shield him when US Marine commandos shot him dead in Pakistan’s Abbottabad city last May.
Last night as Al-Sadah and Osama’s two other wives were being kicked out of Pakistan, it was thought she might try to claim asylum, whining that she faces death or persecution if she is made to return to her native Yemen.
In an interview Al-Sadah’s brother Zakaria Al-Sadah said: “We would definitely like to live in the UK - we have nothing against the UK or its people. Amal would migrate there if given a chance.
“She loves humanity and likes to live in a liberal environment. She is not an extremist.
“If she was asked to lead Al-Qaeda, I don’t think Amal would be ready. She wants to live a peaceful life now. I will convince Amal that she must stop contacts with Al-Qaeda.”
