Pak interrogating Osama's wives in Islamabad

May 6, 2011 - Islamabad

Pakistani intelligence agents today are interrogating three women-all wives of Osama bin Laden-who were captured during the U.S.-led raid on Sunday.

According to ABC News, the wives were living with bin Laden inside the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

According to one of the women, bin Laden confined himself to two rooms in the house, including the bedroom where he was killed. He never left those rooms for the five years he was hiding there, she claimed.

The three wives are in custody in Islamabad, and are facing firm but non-violent questioning, a former intelligence official said.

They have been handed a questionnaire, with 20 questions, the order of which is changed every three or four days. Investigators then look for any differences in the answers.

U.S. officials have requested for access to the wives, but this has been denied.
