Iran is confirming a daughter of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is at the Saudi Embassy in Tehran, but says it doesn’t know how she entered the country.

A Saudi newspaper reported Wednesday that the 17-year-old, Eman, went to the embassy seeking refuge after eluding guards who have held her, her sister and four brothers under house arrest for eight years.

Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on a TV talk show Thursday that Iran had no idea she was in the country until it heard from the embassy. USA Today
