Islamabad, Thu, 29 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 29 (ANI): Former Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's Yemeni widow Amal Ahmed Abdulfattah lived in Karachi for almost 8-9 months and kept changing her residence six or seven times.

During her interrogation, Amal told a joint investigation team (JIT) comprising of Pakistani civilian and military officials that after the 9/11 terror attacks, she reunited with her husband in Peshawar in 2002.

From Peshawar they went to Swat where they lived for about nine months, and later stayed for about two years in Haripur before moving to Abbottabad where bin Laden was killed in a raid by US commandos in May last year.

In the first full account of Osama's movement after 9/11, she told the investigation team in Islamabad that she had lived with him in four cities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, but declined to say if any Pakistani official had been in contact with him. he 29-year-old widow said she had a desire to marry a mujahid, and when Osama's marriage proposal came, she came to Karachi in 2000.

"So in this connection when she got a message of marriage with Osama bin Laden, she came to Pakistan and landed at Karachi airport on 17/07/2000," The Dawn quoted the JIT report, as saying.

She, however, overstayed her three-month visa and later went to Kandahar in Afghanistan. Amal told the investigators that she got married to Osama before 9/11, but did not specify any date. (ANI)
