According to a figure released one of Bin Laden’s former bodyguards is on welfare in Germany.
A Tunisian man who once allegedly protected Osama Bin Laden has lived in Germany since 1997 and gets €1,168 (£1,022) a month in welfare payments.
The figure was revealed by a regional government, after the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) asked about the man, known as Sami A.
German media have not reported the man’s full name for privacy reasons.
He denies jihadist links. Deportation to Tunisia was ruled out because of fears that he could be tortured there.
The report also mentions the ties to 9/11 extremist in Germany had.
At least three of the 9/11 suicide pilots were members of an al-Qaeda cell based in Hamburg, northern Germany.
