A British woman who married a son of Osama bin Laden says the couple is divorcing because of opposition from his family, The Sun newspaper reported Wednesday.
Jane Felix-Browne, a 51-year-old grandmother from Moulton, a village in northwestern England, married Omar bin Laden, 27, in both Egypt and Saudi Arabia in April.
But Felix-Browne said, according to The Sun, that bin Laden's family members feel they have been humiliated. The newspaper quoted her as saying her husband had been threatened in a telephone call, but she did not identify the caller or give details about the threat.
"Omar was told he shouldn't be married to me, and there was a very good chance he would be taken to prison," The Sun quoted her as saying. "Omar knew who it was on the phone, but he wouldn't tell me. After the call he said he felt both our lives were in jeopardy."
She could not be reached for comment Wednesday morning.
