Bin Laden's Wives, Children Still Held in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD -- Pakistan's foreign ministry says government officials are still holding the wives and children of Usama bin Laden for questioning and that so far, no country has sought their extradition.

Pakistan gained custody of bin Laden's three wives and eight children on Monday after a covert U.S. operation killed the Al Qaeda chief at his hideout in the northwestern city of Abbottabad.

Among them was bin Laden's Yemeni-born wife, Amal Ahmed Abdullfattah.

She has told Pakistani investigators that she moved to the home in 2006 and never left the compound.

On Sunday, a Pakistan foreign ministry spokeswoman, Tahmina Janjua, said that neither Yemen or any other country had asked for the extradition of bin Laden's relatives.
