US wants access to bin Laden widows


ISLAMABAD (WKOW) -- The United States hopes it will be allowed to talk to the three widows of Osama bin Laden currently in Pakistani custody.

A national security advisor says the information could help answer questions concerning whether Pakistan helped hide bin Laden.  The advisor made the comments on Sunday's "Meet the Press."

Bin Laden was shot dead in a compound in the town of Abbottabad close to a military academy after a hunt lasting nearly ten years.

The advisor also said that the U.S. has yet any evidence that would lead it to believe Pakistan hid bin Laden.  But he concluded Pakistani authorities still need to provide the U.S. with information they have gathered regarding bin Laden and the compound in addition to providing access to bin Laden's widows.
