LONDON, November 26—The Bin Laden Group, which has been working with Hullin & Metz on its U.S. public relations, is reportedly close to appointing London’s WMC Communications—headed by former Hill & Knowlton chairman David Wynne-Morgan—to launch an international public relations effort.
 
Bin Laden Group and more than 50 members of the bin Laden family are anxious to distance themselves from terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. According to U.K. newspaper The Guardian, executives from the group have held three meetings with Wynne-Morgan, who confirmed that he had met with the company.
 
“We have checked them out and they have no links with terrorism,” says Wynne-Morgan. “I would have no problem working for them. They are one of the largest construction groups in the world. They find themselves in a situation that horrifies them. Talking to the media and giving transparency to the company is something they have never had to do. It goes completely against their culture.”
