Egyptian authorities denied entry to the son of former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, a local security source said Saturday.
Omar bin Laden, a businessman, had arrived at Cairo International Airport late Friday aboard EgyptAir flight from Qatar.
“He was barred from entry after his name was found on a list of people banned from entering the country,” the source said anonymously because he was unauthorized to speak to media.
According to the source, he was deported to Turkey aboard an Istanbul-bound flight.
