Pakistan has contacted the governments of Saudi Arabia and Yemen for the repatriation of the three wives of Osama bin Laden, CNN has reported.

According to the report, officials confirmed that Pakistan had decided to send the wives back to their home countries.

The Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) had taken custody of Bin Laden’s widows, two Saudis and one Yemeni, and around 10 of their children after the May 2 US operation in Abbottabad and the commission had barred authorities from handing them over to any other country without its permission.

Initial efforts to repatriate the women and children ran aground when the commission in July ordered them to remain in Pakistan until further notice, indicating that it wanted to question them in relation to its inquiries.

The Abbottabad commission investigating the raid lifted travel restrictions after recording their statements.

    I don’t understand this !!!

    When Osama was never found in Pakistan…how can these women be his wives? And Where is the proof that they are indeed his wives?

    Not only these women and children but all foreigners who have entered the country illegaly need to be sent back to their countries of origin. We have suffered enough due to the presence of all these unwanted foreigners- be they Uzbeks, Arabs, Afghanis and Chechens. When Pakistan was used to defeat the Soviets in Afghanistan, the West brought all these people to our land and destablized the region leaving us to clean up the mess. Now they should help us deport all illegal foreigners who are working for other agencies and states.

    They not only brought fake body of Osama from Afghanistan, They also airdropped Osama’s family in Pakistan whom they had already kidnapped from Disneyland.Recommend

    There are no wives…no proof brought forward until now…since the fake OBL raid ..and CNN is emphasizing this news just to make people sure again and again that OBL raid wasnt fake. whereas we all know all the marines that participated in this fake raid were assassinated in a heli crash couple months later as to remove the last piece of evidence of the fake raid.Consider this..Us govt. would have recovered these women from Paki govt. uptil now for further questioning about their talks with OBL .but they never did it.

    Pak People: Stop waiting for a miracle! Just dust-off your clothes & start a day of “honest” work.
    Politicians! There is more to democracy than votes, e.g, “work for the people” not yourself.
    Army! Please stay out of the photo/picture until all democratic resources are exhausted.
    Media: Just make sure you don’t become an instrument for chaos too.
    ISI: If mullahs helped you once they can help you again on-short-notice_ don’t keep them as pets.
    Judges: Justice is the only hope in the absence of one. Failure-of-law smell like roses to enemy.
