Pak­istan charges bin Laden’s wid­ows

The Washington Times Daily - - World -

ISLAMABAD | Pak­istan has charged Osama bin Laden’s three wid­ows with il­le­gally en­ter­ing and liv­ing in the coun­try, the in­te­rior min­is­ter said Thurs­day.

The three women have been in Pak­istani de­ten­tion since May last year, when U.S. com­man­dos raided the house where they, bin Laden and sev­eral of their chil­dren were stay­ing. The com­man­dos shot and killed bin Laden, and then buried his body at sea.

Rehman Ma­lik said the three had been charged in court, but he did not say when. It was un­clear if they had a lawyer.

He said their chil­dren were free to leave Pak­istan but could stay with their moth­ers for the du­ra­tion of the trial.
