Four arrested for stealing identity of Bin Laden Brother-in-LawPolice in Madagascar arrested four Africans for ID theft, forgery and using credit card information stolen from Mohammed Jamal Khalifa, a brother-in-law of Osama bin Laden who was killed there in January, according to published reports. INTERPOL -- which monitored Khalifa prior to his death -- was brought in on the case. As I have previously reported, al Qaeda has a track record of identity theft, but that's not necessarily the case here.
