Osama Bin Laden’s Brother Asks $28 Million for Long-Vacant Bel Air Mansion (www.dirt.com)

Though it hasn’t been owner-occupied since the September 11 terrorist attacks, a major estate in prestigious lower Bel Air is on sale for the first time in decades. The “land value only” ask is a steep $28 million, but the Los Angeles property spans more than two acres in the area’s poshest pocket, just a short walk from the Hotel Bel-Air and Bel-Air Country Club.

The home’s current owner is Ibrahim bin Laden, an older half-brother of Osama Bin Laden. Like Osama, Ibrahim was one of 50+ children born to Saudi Arabian construction tycoon Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, who had 22 wives and served as the patriarch of the multibillionaire bin Laden clan, a family with longstanding business ties to Al Saud royals.
