A Yemeni-born wife of Osama bin Laden said she had been living in the al-Qaida chief’s final hideout for six years without leaving the upper floors of the house, a Pakistani intelligence official has said.
The woman is one of three wives of bin Laden being interrogated in Pakistan. Authorities are also holding eight or nine children found at the compound after the US raid.
Their accounts will show how bin Laden spent his time and could offer glimpses into the inner workings of al-Qaida.
The official did not say if the Yemeni wife confirmed bin Laden had also been living there all that time.
