Osama bin Laden's family is expected to be deported from Pakistan to Saudi Arabia early on Wednesday (April 18th), AFP reported.

Bin Laden's three widows and their children were detained by Pakistani authorities after his death in May 2011, and two weeks ago a court sentenced the widows and two of his older daughters to 45 days of detention on charges of illegal entry and residency in Pakistan.

The 12-member family will initially go to Saudi Arabia, but Bin Laden's youngest wife Amal Abdulfattah, who is Yemeni, and her five children may be sent to Yemen at a later date.
