CARMEN BIN LADEN

Osama bin Laden's sister-in-law, Carmen bin Laden, has written a book with the title, Veiled Kingdom. It will be out in bookstores in Sweden next week (En Gyllene Bur = A Golden Cage in Swedish). Gunilla von Hall interviewed Carmen bin Laden in Genève on June 24. I wonder if her ex-husband, Yeslam bin Laden, has stopped transferring money to Osama... Here is an excerpt from Diane Sawyer's interview with Carmen bin Laden:

On whether some members of the bin Laden family may have ever helped finance Osama's activities:
"My opinion is yes ... I think they would say, 'OK, this is for Islam.' They would give. For Islam they would give." (ABC News, 10/24/01.)
