Osama Bin Laden’s Family To Be Deported From Pakistan

Pakistan will deport Osama bin Laden’s three widows and two children next week. The widows and children were held by Pakistani security forces after a U.S. special forces raid killed bin Laden last May. The widows, two Saudi nationals and one from Yemen, were sentenced to 45 days in prison for illegally residing in Pakistan. “They are likely to be deported to Saudi Arabia on April 18, as their sentence ends on April 17,” the family’s lawyer, Aamir Khalil, told Reuters. Since the May raid, the family members have been prevented from publicly discussing their time in bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound.
