Osama bin Laden's A brother-in-law, who had been sought in the Philippines for alleged terror financing, was killed in Madagascar in what appeared to be a burglary, the victim's brother said Wednesday. Jamal Khalifa, who was married to a sister of the al-Qaida leader, was killed when gunmen broke into his house in a Madagascan village on Tuesday, his brother Malek Khalifa said in a phone interview from his home in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia. Malek, who was distraught when recounting his brother's death, said 25-30 armed men broke into Jamal's house "while he was sleeping," and killed him. "They stole everything, his computer, all of his things," he said. Malek said he did not have more details because his brother was a Saudi citizen and Saudi Arabia did not have an embassy on the East African island. He said his main concern was "to collect my brother's body." Jamal was in Madagascar on business and his wife and family were in Saudi Arabia.
