ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.— There's a five-bedroom Mediterranean-style mansion for sale in Florida that comes with a little notoriety, too. It was once owned by one of Osama bin Laden's brothers.

Khalil bin Laden is one of Osama bin Laden's 54 siblings. He bought the lakefront home in 1980 for $1.6 million. It's located in the small central Florida town of Oakland, about 20 miles west of Orlando.

But in the days after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Khalil bin Laden and his family fled the United States under police escort and never returned.

The home has been vacant ever since.

Khalil's corporation sold the property in 2006 to a development company, then went into foreclosure.

The asking price is now nearly $1,999,000.
