The British government says it has refused on Thursday to allow a son of Osama bin Laden to travel to Britain. Omar bin Laden had appealed an earlier decision by UK authorities to keep him out of Britain. The 28-year-old son of the al-Qaida leader wants to come to Britain to be with his 58-year-old English partner, Jane Felix-Browne, whom he claims to have married. Mark Ockelton of the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal said Thursday that Omar bin Laden's appeal has been rejected because authorities still did not believe his marriage is valid. Omar bin Laden had sought asylum in Spain, but Spanish authorities last year refused him permission to remain in the country and deported him to Egypt. He said at the time he did not feel safe in Arab countries.
