Islamabad: Officials in Pakistan say the
country has agreed to let Osama bin Laden`s youngest widow
return to her native Yemen. But they would not reveal when
she`ll leave.

Amal Ahmed Abdullfattah, two other widows and eight of
bin Laden`s children were detained following the May 2 US raid
that killed the al Qaeda chief in the northwestern Pakistani
city of Abbottabad.

A Pakistani security official said today that Pakistan
has granted Abdullfattah permission to go home. An official at
the Yemeni embassy in Islamabad confirmed an agreement had
been reached on her deportation.

Both officials requested anonymity because of the
topic`s sensitivity.

The security official says Abdullfattah has fully
recovered from a bullet that struck her leg during the raid.
