Al Arabiya television network has aired a video showing the widows, children and grandchildren of former al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden inside a villa basement in Islamabad where they were serving a 45 days in jail for illegal residency in the country.
Osama Bin Laden and his family had been living in Pakistan for about five years before the USA located and killed him in May of last year by U.S. Special Forces who stormed his house in the Pakistani garrison town of Abbottabad after a decade-long manhunt.
One of bin Laden's wife is Amal Ahmed Abdullfattah, a Yemeni, and the other two are Saudi.
According to Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Tahmina Janjua, neither Yemen nor any other country asked for the extradition of bin Laden's relatives.
Bin Laden’s family lawyer Muhammad Aamir said the period of detention began on March 3, when they were formally arrested on charges of illegal entry and residency in Pakistan and that they would continue to be held at their villa in Islamabad, Al Arabiya news reported.
Earlier, the Pakistan Taliban told Reuters news that it will attack government, police and military targets if Pakistani authorities don’t release three widows of the Osama Bin laden.
"If the family of Osama bin Laden is not released as soon as possible, we will attack the judges, the lawyers and the security officials involved in their trial."
