ISLAMABAD (AP) — A widow of Osama bin Laden has told investigators that the al-Qaida leader lived in five safe houses while on the run in Pakistan. And she says he fathered four children — two of them born in government hospitals.
These details of bin Laden's life as a fugitive in Pakistan are contained in the interrogation report of the widow, who was from Yemen. They raise fresh questions about how bin Laden was able to remain undetected for so long.
The widow is currently in Pakistani custody, along with bin Laden's two other wives and several children.
