Omar Bin Laden, son of al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, has being deported from Egypt and Spain after his failed asylum bids. Omar who is now in Qatar said he does not share his father's views and has not seen him since 2000.
Although, their legal status in Qatar is unknown, both Omar and his British wife, Zaina Alsabah Bin Laden (formerly Jane Felix-Browne) have also been unable to secure British visas.
Omar one of the Osama’s 19 sons, made claim for asylum in Madrid during a stopover on a flight from Egypt to Morocco with his 52-year-old wife.
He said the petition was rejected due to "insufficient evidence of danger or threat to (his) life". An appeal against the ruling is also believed to have been rejected.
The couple was then barred from entering Egypt, where they have lived for the past year. It was not known why Egypt denied them entry.
Officials at Cairo airport said the pair were deported to Qatar, where Mr. Bin Laden, who has Saudi nationality, should normally have the right to live.
"We have finally found somewhere where we can stay and we thank the government. We cannot thank them enough," Mr Bin Laden's wife was quoted by AFP news agency.
Omar Bin Laden, a metals trader, says he has urged his father to give up violence and has not seen him for eight years.
Mrs. Bin Laden says his life is in danger because he "stands up and asks for peace" and their condemnation of al-Qaeda had put their lives in danger in the Mid-East.
