Bin Laden's family of twelve kicked out of Pakistan just days before the first anniversary of his death
Osama Bin Ladenís family were kicked out of Pakistan last night Ė just days before the first anniversary of the terror mastermindís death.
The slain Al Qaeda leaderís three widows, their eight children and one grandchild were flown to Saudi Arabia.
A Pakistani judge ordered earlier this month that the women be deported to their countries of citizenship after serving a six month sentence for illegally entering the country.
The widows Ė Amal Ahmed Abdul Fateh, Khairiah Sabar and Siham Sabar Ė have all been in custody with their children since the pre-dawn May 1 Navy SEAL raid last year on Bin Ladenís hideaway compound in Abbottabad.
Fateh, Bin Ladenís youngest widow, is expected to travel on to her native Yemen with her four children.
The first sign that the family was departing came when a bus arrived at the home where they were being held under house arrest in Islamabad to take them to the airport.
It was covered with a big cloth to hide them from the media.
A special plane was flown in from Saudi Arabia to pick them up under tight security.
Saudi officials relented after initially refusing to take the family.
The widows and two older daughters, aged 17 and 21, pleaded guilty to impersonation, illegal entry into Pakistan and staying in the country illegally.
Fateh told Pakistani investigators that bin Laden spent years on the run in Pakistan after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, moving from one safe house to another and fathering four children.
