Six of Osama bin Laden's 11 sons will soon be stripped of their Saudi Arabian nationality, the kingdom's Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdul-Aziz said in an interview published Friday by the London-based Asharq Al Awsat newspaper.
"They will be stripped of their Saudi nationality, like their father, whose Saudi nationality was withdrawn in 1994 for his involvement in terrorist activities and criticism of the ruling Saud family," Prince Nayef was quoted as saying.
Targets of the impending measure are identified as Saad, Hamza, Saif, Mohammed, Khaled and Laden, the youngest. They are thought to be living with their father.
The other five bin Laden sons, who live in Saudi Arabia, will retain their nationality, the minister said. (Albawaba.com)
