US interviews hostile bin Laden widows with Pakistan officials

The widows and children of former al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden are en route to Islamabad airport and will leave the country shortly, Pakistan television reported Thursday.

The bin Laden family, which includes three widows, eight children and one grandchild, was due to be deported last week for illegally entering and residing in Pakistan.

Heavily armed guards and a bus are taking bin Laden’s family out of Pakistan to Saudi Arabia on Friday. Initially Saudi authorities refused to accept his widows and the children of the al Qaeda leader directly from Pakistan. Instead, they wanted entry to come through a third country.

Sources have reported that a special plane from the Arab kingdom will be transporting the family, according to Express News.

The former al Qaeda chief was found to be living with three of his wives and nine children at a mansion in the garrison town of Abbottabad. US troops went into Pakistani territory on a stealth helicopter before raiding the house and killing bin Laden in the early hours of May 2, 2011.

The move was originally delayed in the midst of confusion when Pakistan had announced the deportation of Bin Laden’s three widows on April 18, 2012 following a court order two weeks ago which had handed the family a 45 day detention sentence (pre dated to March 3) for illegally entering and living in Pakistan, before being sent to the countries of their origin.
