Omar bin Laden, the Al Qaeda leader's fourth son, has married a British woman he met in Egypt last fall, British media and colleagues of the bride said Wednesday.

Jane Felix-Browne, 51, of Moulton-Cheshire, in northwest England, was in Egypt for medical treatment of multiple sclerosis, the Times and Sun newspapers reported. She told the newpapers she met the younger bin Laden while riding a horse near Egypt's Great Pyramid.

The couple has since held Islamic marriage ceremonies in both Egypt and Saudi Arabia, Felix-Browne said. This would be her sixth marriage, and she has three children by previous marriages. It would be Omar bin Laden's second marriage.

Felix-Browne is hoping to arrange a visa for her new husband to visit Britain, but acknowledged it would be difficult.

"Because my husband's name is bin Laden he finds it very difficult to travel anywhere," she told The Sun.

"I just married the man I fell in love with — to me hez is just Omar," she told The Times. "I hope people will take a step back and think what it is like when they fell in love."

"He last saw his father in 2000 when they were both in Afghanistan," she said. "He left his father because he did not feel it was right to fight or to be in an army. Omar was training to be a soldier and he was only 19."

Felix-Browne said she has become Omar bin Laden's second wife, and is hoping to arrange a visa for her new husband to visit Britain, but acknowledged it would be difficult.

"Because my husband's name is bin Laden he finds it very difficult to travel anywhere," she told The Sun.

She divides her time between her homes in northern England and Jedda, Saudi Arabia.
