Days after 9/11: The ordeal Osama bin Laden's wives, children faced

But his jihadist ideology rendered their lives with uncertainties.Osama`s family was on a constant run after the September 11 attacks. It moved from Kandahar to Tora Bora mountains, then to Pakistan and eventually entered Iran as refugees and after the May 2011 Abbottabad raid, his three wives Khairiah and Hamzah and Amal were detained in Pakistan for a year.
