Bin Laden Jr. Denied Asylum

The Spanish government did not buy Omar Osama Bin Laden's claim that his life would be in danger if he returned to Saudi Arabia. Bin Laden claims that he is no longer safe in any Arab country, but Spanish officials believe he is only trying to garner publicity for a book he is writing about the 20 years he spent with his father. An initial report from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees supports Spain's decision. Bin Laden has hired a Spanish lawyer and filed an appeal, a move that could delay a final decision for another two months.
