Bin Laden family to be deported from Pakistan today
Wednesday 18 April 2012
A lawyer for Osama bin Laden's three widows and their nine children
said the family is expected to be deported from Pakistan to Saudi Arabia
Mohammad Amir Khalil said the family was unable to leave overnight as planned because the brother of bin Laden's youngest wife, Amal Ahmed Abdel-Fatah al-Sada, was not in possession of his passport.
Zakaria al-Sada has been in Pakistan campaigning for his sister Amal's release.
Mr Khalil said his passport was currently being held by a Pakistani court, but it was expected to be released later today.
He said the family would then likely leave for Saudi Arabia.
The family has been in Pakistani detention since the US raid that killed bin Laden almost a year ago.
