Bin Laden's son seeks release of kin

One of Osama bin Laden's sons has called on Tehran to release a number of his relatives said to be detained under house arrest in Iran, according to a letter released Sunday. The message, distributed by the Global Islamic Media Front and translated by the Site Intelligence Group monitoring service, is purportedly from bin Laden's son Khalid. It directly addresses Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, calling on him to intervene to secure the release of the bin Laden relatives. "After the Crusader attack on Afghanistan... they were forced to enter Iran through unofficial means, and most of those who did were women and children," the letter said.
