A surrogate mother carrying two grandchildren of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has lost the twins, after she was attacked on her way home from a cafe in Syria, a media report said.

According to The Sun, bin Laden's 29-year-old son Omar hired 24-year-old Louise Pollard from Bristol to have the kids for him and his estranged British wife Zaina.

But Louise, who was ten weeks pregnant, lost the twins after she was attacked by two men on her way home from a cafe in Syria. The former pole dancer went to hospital where she was told the babies had died, the report said.

She said there was no clear motive for the attack but she had been recognised in the UK and abroad as the woman carrying the grandchildren of al-Qaeda terror chief Bin Laden, the British tabloid said.

Zaina, 54, formerly Jane Felix-Browne, of Cheshire, said Omar had developed a mental illness and the couple have now separated. They had been due to pay Louise 10,000 pounds after the birth of the twins.
