Pakistan to allow US to question bin Laden's wives
Pakistan has agreed to allow US agents to interview the wives of slain terrorist leader Osama bin Laden, broadcaster CBS News reported late Monday.
CBS said that US intelligence will have "direct access" to question the three wives, who survived the May 2 raid on bin Laden's hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan, DPA reported.
A team of US Navy commandos assaulted bin Laden's secret compound by helicopter, killed the reportedly unarmed al-Qaeda chief after a firefight with other men in the house, and left with the body of the terrorist network's leader, who was quickly buried at sea.
One of bin Laden's wives was reportedly wounded in the raid, according to US accounts.
