Bin Laden's son warns of future violence

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Omar bin Laden, son of wanted terrorist Osama bin Laden, said the United States and other countries will likely face future violence from his father's peers.

ABC News said Thursday that Omar Bin Laden told the U.S. media group exclusively that countries like the United States will probably face additional attacks, particularly if his father is eventually killed by U.S, forces.

"From what I knew of my father and the people around him I believe he is the most kind among them, because some are much, much worse," Omar bin Laden told ABC News. "Their mentality wants to make more violence, to create more problems."

Omar bin Laden, whose father is the target of a $25 million bounty, remains confident his father will continue to elude authorities as he has since he was linked to terror attacks such as the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States.

Nonetheless, Omar bin Laden questions his father's violent methods, telling ABC News terror attacks on civilians in "unacceptable."

"Attacking peaceful people is not being fair, it is unacceptable. If you have a problem with armies or governments you should fight those people," said the younger bin Laden, who says he is not involved in acts of terror and hopes to reunite family members living across the Middle East.
