Osama Bin Laden’s Rare Family Album

in Society

Only after Osama Bin Laden was killed by the U.S. special forces in Quetta, Pakistan on May 1, 2011, have some rare pictures of his family members been released. Though he had four wives and more than 20 children, the media found it hard to spot photos of these people.

Among Osama bin Laden’s children, Omar bin Laden is the son most opposed to his father's violence, he even got a British woman and wished to have a peace movement. Osama’s first daughter had to walk down the aisle at the age of 12 but became widow two years later.

Below is the Osama bin Laden’s rare family album.
