Pakistan to deport bin Ladens13/04/2012 - 17:49:15
Pakistan is to deport Osama bin Laden’s three widows and their children to Saudi Arabia next week, the family’s lawyer said today.
Mohammed Amir Khalil says the family will be deported on April 18, a day after they finish their 45-day prison sentence for illegally entering and living in the country.
Two of the killed al-Qaida leader’s widows are from Saudi Arabia and one from Yemen. It is unclear why the authorities are not sending the Yemeni woman to her home country.
The family has been in detention since American commandos killed bin Laden at a large compound where he was hiding in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad last May.
