Pakistan Charges bin Laden Wives

Three of Osama bin Laden’s widows, who have been held by Pakistani authorities since the U.S. raid that killed their husband in May, have been charged with illegally entering and living in the country, Pakistan’s interior minister said Thursday. Each woman could face up to five years in jail, though it’s possible that the charges are just part of a process of letting them out of the country. One of the wives is from Yemen, another from Saudi Arabia, and the third’s nationality isn’t known.
