Omar Osama bin Laden, a son of the al- Qaeda leader, sought political asylum in Spain after landing at Madrid’s Barajas airport. The younger bin Laden, 27, who has a Saudi Arabian passport and is married to a British woman, said in a CNN interview in January that he condemned violence and was not in touch with his father. Spain has three days to respond to the Nov. 4 request, said a spokesman at the Interior Ministry who declined to be identified, in line with policy. (Bloomberg)
