Feb. 2, 2013 at 12:27 PM

ANKARA, Turkey, Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Turkish security forces arrested the late al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden's son-in-law, Suleiman Abu Gheith, in Ankara, Turkish media agencies reported.

The United States' Central Intelligence Agency tipped off Turkish authorities to Gheith's whereabouts, Afghanistan's Khaama Press reported Saturday.

The CIA told the Turkish National Intelligence Organization Gheith, a former al-Qaida leader, entered Turkey on a false passport, Turkey's Daily Milliyet reported.

Gheith allegedly fled Afghanistan to a camp in Iran following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on the United States, Hurriyet Daily News reported.

U.S. Navy SEALs killed bin Laden during a raid at his compound in Pakistan in May 2011.
