The Turkish security services on Friday arrested the son-in-law of the late Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper reported Saturday.

According to the report, the Turkish security services received intelligence from the CIA that "Suleiman" was in Turkey, and they located and arrested him at a hotel in Akara.

Asharq Al-Awsat cited a source close to the bin Laden family as saying that Suleiman sought political asylum in Turkey, and described him as the "final remnant" of family members who were being held under house arrest by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
