Reports: Bin Laden family set to leave Pakistan

Associated Press

ISLAMABAD (AP) — A minivan has arrived at the house where the three widows and children of Osama bin Laden are staying amid media reports they will soon be deported to Saudi Arabia.

Local TV channels report the family will leave later Thursday.

Lawyers for the family were not immediately available for comment.

The van arrived at the house, where scores of intelligence officers and police were also stationed.

The family was detained by Pakistani authorities immediately after the pre-dawn raid on May 2, 2011, in Abbottabad.

The American commandos left them behind but took bin Laden's body, which they later buried at sea.
