Osama was neither ‘weak nor frail’: Wife

Contrary to a widely held belief that Osama was on dialysis, his youngest wife has said that the al-Qaeda chief was healthy and had recovered from two kidney operations, in part by using homemade remedies, including watermelon.



Washington: Contrary to a widely held
belief that Osama bin Laden was on dialysis, his youngest wife
has said that the al-Qaeda chief was healthy and had recovered
from two kidney operations, in part by using homemade
remedies, including watermelon.

"He was neither weak nor frail," bin Laden`s youngest
wife Amal Ahmed Abdulfattah told Pakistani investigators.

The 29-year-old Yemeni told them that bin Laden had
recovered from two kidney operations a decade or more ago in
southern Afghanistan, in part by using homemade remedies,
including watermelon, the New York Times reported.

She was apparently the one shot by US special forces
commandos in the leg as she rushed towards them in an effort
to protect her husband.

There were nine children in the household, but it
remained unclear how many belonged to bin Laden and his son
and how many to the courier and his brother.

Pakistani investigators, who reached after the
American forces left bin Laden`s Abbottabad house, found
remedies for children`s ear infections, colds and coughs.

According to NBC News, they also found Avena syrup, an
extract of wild oats that can be taken for an upset stomach
but is also sold as an aphrodisiac.
