Close family members of the former Al-Qaaeda leader are feared dead after a private jet they were travelling in crashed whilst trying to land at an airfield in London.
Reports indicate that the dead on the aircraft included Osama bin Laden’s stepmother Rajaa Hashim, his half-sister Sana bin Laden and her husband Zuhair Hashim.
The trio were in a Phenom 300 £7m valued jet registered to the Bin Laden family, and crashed whilst trying to land at Blackbushe Airport in Hampshire, about 40 miles southwest of London.
A statement from the airport indicated all three died immediately, as well as the pilot, a Jordanian national. The pilot overshot the runway whilst attempting to land and crashed into a nearby car park, exploding on impact.
