Osama bin Laden's son has been banned from entering Britain to live with his new wife because of fears that his presence might cause "public concern". Omar bin Laden (26) recently sought a British visa so that he could settle down with his 52-year-old wife Jane Felix Browne at her home in Cheshire, have a surrogate child and work as "peace activists".
But the British Embassy in Cairo has refused to grant him a visa, saying there is evidence that he is still loyal to his father ó the world's most wanted man ó responsible for London bombings of July 7, 2005, The Times reported on Wednesday. "The decision has been made on the ground that exclusion from the United Kingdom is conducive to the public good... in the light of the character, conduct or association of the person seeking leave to enter it is undesirable to give him leave to enter."I note that statements made during recent media interviews indicate evidence of continuing loyalty to your father, and your presence in the United Kingdom could, therefore, cause considerable public concern," an Embassy official told Omar.
