French Police Search Villa of Bin Laden Brother
Wed Mar 20, 8:35 AM ET
PARIS (Reuters) - Police searched the French Riviera villa of the half-brother of Osama bin Laden on Wednesday as part of a money-laundering investigation, judicial sources said.
The sources did not say what the result of the searches were on the Cannes home of Geneva-based financier Yeslam binLadin, who spells his name differently from his half-brother.
The search follows a money-laundering probe launched in December 2001 by Paris investigating judges that targets binLadin's Saudi Investment Company (SICO).

Police swoop on Bosnian charity
By the BBC's Alix Kroeger in Sarajevo
Bosnian police have raided the offices of an Islamic charity believed to have links with extremist organisations, including the al-Qaeda terrorist network.
Police seized documents and questioned staff at the Benevolentia International Foundation in Sarajevo and in the central Bosnian town of Zenica.
The raid is part of ongoing efforts to clamp down on Islamic charities which may be channelling funds to al-Qaeda and other extremist organisations.
In January, six naturalised Bosnians were stripped of their citizenship and handed over to the American authorities. Most of them had been working for Islamic humanitarian organisations.
