    Osama bin Laden's eldest son, Saad, who was with his father during the US-led air campaign against Afghanistan in 2001, is currently in Iran, a Saudi-owned newspaper reported today.

    Al-Sharq Al-Awsat said, citing a diplomatic source and without giving further details, that: "Saad, the eldest son of Osama bin Laden, head of the Al Qaeda network, was spotted in Iran."

    The pan-Arab paper added that bin Laden himself "is not in Iran".

    Asharq Al-Awsat reported last July that Saad had taken over the command of Al Qaeda since the US offensive against Al Qaeda bases in Afghanistan.

    That disclosure, the daily said at the time, "substantiates the theory that Osama was killed or seriously wounded" in the US-led military campaign.

    In a tape broadcast Tuesday by Al-Jazeera satellite television a voice identified as that of bin Laden urged Muslims to fight for Iraq in the event of a possible US-led war.
