  Bin Laden's niece aiming for pop stardom
Updated 15 March 2003, 14.24
Osama Bin Laden
A niece of terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden is planning on launching herself as a pop star in the UK.

Waffa Bin Laden, who lives in London, has been working on demos and is hoping to sign a record deal soon, according to the Sun newspaper.

26-year-old Waffa's a lawyer and trained in the US. Her dad Yeslam is the al-Qaeda leader's brother.

Worried about name

But Waffa doesn't have anything to do with her uncle.

However, the paper says Waffa is worried her surname might be off-putting to some record labels.

Waffa's said to look a bit like Natalie Imbruglia.

She's reportedly been working with Madonna producer Nellee Hooper and John Benson, the man who discovered All Saints.
