Osama bin Laden's 26-year-old son has sought a British visa so that he and his granny bride can live in the country and have a surrogate child.



British Embassy officials in Cairo have interviewed Omar bin Laden who plans to settle down with his 52-year-old wife Jane Felix-Browne at her home in Cheshire, have a child through a surrogate mother and work as "peace activists", the

Daily Mail

reported in London on Sunday.



The son of the world's most wanted man and five-time divorcee Jane, now Zaina Al Sabah bin Laden, have given the British Embassy in Cairo – where they are currently living – access to their bank accounts to allow checks on authenticity of their relationship. Omar has recently divorced his first wife, the mother of his two-year-old son, to prove that his marriage to Jane is nothing but "genuine".



"The embassy staff are all very friendly and they are doing all the checks. It could take a while for the visa to come through but there's no reason in law why Omar and I should not be able to live in the United Kingdom together."



"It is very easy to get a tourist visa. Other members of Omar's family have had them, but we have applied for a settlement visa. We would stay in Cheshire where I have a house," Jane was quoted by the British newspaper as saying.
