(Newser) – With the anniversary of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden just days away, Pakistan has gotten rid of the remaining members of his family. Three widows and two adult daughters were taken from the house in Islamabad where they had served a 45-day sentence for being in the country illegally. Along with nine of bin Laden's children and grandchildren, they were brought to an airport where they were put on a special flight to Saudi Arabia, the BBC reports. Most of the bin Ladens are Saudi citizens but one wife is from Yemen and she is expected to travel on to that country.
