Bin Laden group barred from Saudi mosque after lethal crane collapse
Construction group of Osama bin Laden’s family suspended, banned from leaving, after lethal 9/11 snafu at Islam’s holiest site.
The influential Saudi Binladin Group has been suspended by Saudi Arabia after one of its cranes at the Grand Mosque in Mecca collapsed last Friday, killing 107 and wounding 238 people at the holiest site in Islam which houses the Kaaba cube Muslims pray towards.
Ironically the lethal crane collapse took place on September 11 amid high winds and a sandstorm; Binladin Group was founded in 1931 by the father of Osama bin Laden, the infamous late terror leader of Al Qaeda who conducted the 9/11 attacks against the US exactly 14 years earlier. Osama’s brother Bakr runs the Binladin Group.
Aside from barring Binladin Group from taking on new projects, Saudi Arabia banned the company’s executives from traveling abroad during the course of the investigation into the crane accident. Likewise the Group’s projects will be reviewed by the finance ministry.
The Group, which has been highly influential in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has yet to issue a statement on its suspension by the government from taking on new construction projects.
