From a contemporary newspaper report on the visit of the wealthy Arab Family:


Yesterday Salem bin Ladin visited Falun on a combined business and pleasure trip through Europe. He was accompanied by 22 members of his family, which in total consists of 54 children. The young sheikh, who is 26 years old, arrived in his private jet to Borlange airport, while the rest of the family arrived by car. He has visited the club Ophelia in Falun. The young sheikh is reported to be a big fan of discos and has visited the discos of Falun at various times in the past, however not together with his family.

The sheikh is said to be owner of a big and successful construction company in his home country, Saudi Arabia. In Gothenburg it is said that he surprised Volvo by entering their office and ordering a large number of trucks for his company.
