Bin Laden Reality Show Causes 9/11 Fury

A forthcoming reality TV show starring Osama Bin Laden's niece has been widely condemned by 9/11 support groups.

Wafah Dufour, the daughter of terrorist bin Laden's half-brother, Yeslam Bin Ladin, has signed a lucrative deal for the TV series, which will follow her battle for chart success in a fly-on-the-wall documentary.

But the September 11th Family Association has demanded the show be axed before its television debut.

A spokeswoman said Saturday, "This is an absolute disgrace. We urge every TV network and channel planning to run this series to think again.

"The very idea that the family of a man with so much blood on his hands should profit from some sort of instant celebrity is an outrage."

Producer Judith Regan, who is auctioning the series to networks across America, defends her decision to make the reality show: "Wafah may be related to Osama--but she isn't him. She's a beautiful young woman who is gifted and trying to find her own way in life.

"She has a lot of allure, sex appeal and personality--and she can sing.

"She has sisters and she fights with her mom. It'll be an interesting show."
