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.
