A Pakistani court will charge Osama bin Laden's widows and two of his daughters next week with illegal entry and residency, AFP reported Monday (March 26th).

If the women are convicted, they are liable to be deported or imprisoned, their lawyer Muhammad Aamir said. Under Pakistani law, the maximum sentence is five years.

Bin Laden's two Saudi and one Yemeni widows, together with their children, have been living under the protection of the authorities in Pakistan since he was killed in May 2011.
