Amal bin laden, fourth wife of al-Qaeda terrorist, and mastermind of 9/11 attack, Osama Bin Laden, has recounted, for the first time, how it felt to watch her husband die in a terrible US military gunfire. Osama Bin Laden died at the hands of SEAL special forces on May 11, 2011 in their ‘safe house’ in the mountains of Abbottabad in Pakistan.
Amal bin Laden told the story of the night to Cathy Scott-Clarke and Adrian Levy for their book, The Exile: The Flight of Osama bin Laden, which has been excerpted in the Sunday Times UK.
By 11pm on May 1, 2011, after dinner, the dishes, and prayer, bin Laden was fast asleep while his fourth wife lie next to him.
Outside, the streets were dark due to an electricity shortage, something that was a common occurrence in the area, but Amal awoke uneasily just past midnight.
She heard a chop chop chop sound and thought she saw shadows dancing on the windows. Bin Laden sat up, looking frightened.
‘Americans are coming,’ he said, panting. Then there was a loud screeching noise and the house rocked.
