Bin Laden relatives killed in UK plane crash

Bin Laden relatives killed in UK plane crashMembers of Osama Bin Laden’s family were among the victims in the crash of a private jet in Britain, the Saudi embassy in London said on Saturday in a message of condolences.
Four people died when the Saudi Arabia-registered plane ploughed into a car auction site and burst into flames in southern England on Friday.
Local police said the pilot and three passengers died when the Phenom 300 jet attempted to land at Blackbushe Airport in Hampshire and that no one was injured on the ground.
The Saudi ambassador “offered his condolences to the sons of the late Mohammed bin Laden and their relations for the grave incident of the crash of the plane carrying members of the family at Blackbushe airport,” read a statement posted on the embassy’s official Twitter account.
Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation said in a statement on Friday that the plane was registered in the Gulf state, and that it would work with British investigators to determine the cause of the crash.
The BBC reported that the aircraft had taken off from Milan’s Malpensa airport in Italy.
