PESHAWAR, Pakistan, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- The body of the son of a top aide of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was found in a house in Peshawar, Pakistan, officials said.

The officials identified him as Abdullah Noori, a suspected al-Qaida leader and son of Abdul Qadir, an Algerian identified as bin Laden's top aide, Dawn newspaper reported.

The body was found Wednesday, the report said. Officials said the man was being treated for a kidney ailment by a private physician in a rented house in the Tehkal area of Peshawar, capital of North West Frontier Province, which has been the scene of much militant violence.

The report said 10 people in the house were arrested, but seven of them were later released. The other three were said to be foreigners, including one Algerian, the report said.
