Osama bin Laden’s three widows were among the members of his family deported to Saudi Arabia on Friday—and Saudis said Saturday they would allow them to say on “humanitarian grounds.” The three women and their two daughters served 45 days under house arrest for impersonation and illegally entering and residing in Pakistan. In a deposition given by one of the wives, Amal Ahmed Abdul Fateh, the woman provides details of the 10 years bin Laden spent on the run after the September 11 attacks, saying in her deposition that Pakistanis arranged “everything” while they were in hiding.
