Osama bin Laden's Family Being Deported

Ad Feedback

The lawyer for Osama bin Laden's three widows and nine children said the family will be deported to Saudi Arabia around midnight Tuesday.

The group was detained last May after U.S. Navy SEALs raided the bin Laden compound in northwest Pakistan and killed the al-Qaeda leader.

Earlier this month, the widows of two of bin Laden's adult children were convicted of illegally living in Pakistan.

They were all sentenced to 45 days in prison but were given credit for the time they had already served.

Pakistani officials have been tight-lipped about their interrogations of the family. Some Americans accuse the country of withholding information that could possibly link Pakistan with assisting bin Laden in hiding.

The deportation could help to end tension between the two countries. Pakistani officials accused the United States of neglecting to confer with them in the operation to capture one of the world's top terrorists.
