The youngest of Osama Bin Laden’s three widows wants to raise her five children in Britain, it has been reported.

Amal Abdulfattah al-Sadah is in the process of being deported from Pakistan following the US special forces raid which killed her husband last year.

The Yemen-born 29-year-old is apparently keen to move to Britain and has claimed she would “love to meet the Royal Family”, The Sun says.

Al-Sadah, who married bin Laden at the age of 17, is apparently considering claiming asylum in Britain.

Her brother Zakaria al-Sadah exclusively told the newspaper: “We would definitely like to live in the UK – we have nothing against the UK or its people. Amal would migrate there if given a chance.

“She loves humanity and likes to live in a liberal environment. She is not an extremist.”

Bin Laden’s other wives Khairia, 61 and Siham, 48, are reported to have clashed with al-Sadah over her demands for sex from bin Laden “24 hours a day”.

Al-Sadah and bin Laden’s two other widows were sentenced to 45 days in prison by a Pakistani court for illegally remaining in the country. Their deportation was ordered after the prison term, which began on March 3, Reuters reported.

The lair where Bin Laden lived in secrecy before the alleged final stand off with US Commandoes was razed to the ground two months ago.

Bin Laden moved into the three-storey house in 2005 and lived there until it was stormed by Navy Seals in May 2011.

The house was located just half a mile from one of Pakistan’s top army training academies, which caused embarrassment for the country’s intelligence services, AP reported.

US officials say there was no evidence senior Pakistan officials were aware of Bin Laden’s location.

Residents living nearby told the Independent they had thought the building would be turned into a mosque, school or clinic.

Shah Mohammad said: “I think they should build a mosque. If you build a school there, people will just associate it with Bin Laden.”

A source had told the paper demolition was on the cards ahead of the event, adding: “There is an issue, in our culture, of such places becoming shrines.”
