Osama bin Laden's niece Noor has claimed she almost faced arrest after organizing a boat flotilla on Lake Geneva and waving a protesting "Trump won" flag onboard a day before the US President Joe Biden's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Switzerland.


Relative of the terrorist group's founder and a Swiss resident, Noor, 33, has been standing with the flag on one of the two small boats, wearing a white bikini. Another flashmob's stakeholders waved the Trump campaign’s “Make America Great Again” flag and "Trump 2020" banner. Swiss authorities sent out two police boats to stop the protesters.

"Hello from Geneva! Waiting for the motorcade from the perfect spot, in perfect company!" Noor bin Laden also wrote on Twitter, sharing pictures of herself while sipping champagne right before their act on the lake.

Judging the upcoming event, the self-proclaimed activist wrote: “This whole summit is a joke. Trump won and all of this is theatrics,” saying that US-Russia political negotiations "formally" illustrated "Putin’s an alpha and Biden’s a beta."

Earlier Noor bin Ladin (intentionally spells her last name differently), who has publicly denounced her uncle and his part in the 9/11 attacks he was considered by US authorities to be responsible along with other militant Islamist terrorist organization leaders, several times in the past showed her support for the former president, Donald Trump, "since he announced he was running in the early days in 2015", praising Trump as 'the only one who can prevent another 9/11'.

Noor and her two sisters were raised in Switzerland. Her mother, Carmen Dufour is a Swiss writer. Her father, Yeslam bin Ladin, is the older, half-brother of Osama Bin Laden, who was killed by American special forces in his compound in Pakistan on May 1, 2011, as announced by Barack Obama.

The series of four September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001 against the United States killed nearly 3,000 Americans, resulted in 25,000 injuries, and substantial long-term health consequences. It remains the deadliest terrorist attack in human history and the deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in US history, with 340 and 72 killed.
