Osama bin Laden's widows have been in Pakistani custody since the death of the al Qaeda leader in Abbottabad in May 2011.


Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- Pakistan will deport the widows and children of terrorism mastermind Osama bin Laden to Saudi Arabia next week, their attorney said Friday.

Earlier this month, a Pakistani court sentenced the three widows -- two Saudis and a Yemeni -- and two of bin Laden's daughters to 45 days of house arrest for living illegally in the South Asian nation.

The court ordered that they be deported after their term, which began March 3 when they were formally arrested, was served, said lawyer Aamir Khalil.

The family members will take a special Saudi flight next Wednesday, Khalil said. He was not clear whether the Yemeni woman would remain in Saudi Arabia.
