Osama Bin Laden's three widows have been charged by Pakistan with illegally entering the country.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik said the women, reported to be two Saudis and a Yemeni, had been charged but did not say when the hearing took place.

The wives and about 10 children were taken into custody last May when US commandos raided their safe house.

The three women had been living in the compound in Abbottabad that Navy Seals attacked, killing Bin Laden.

He told reporters in Islamabad that "only the adults had been charged", and the children were free to return to their native countries if their mothers agreed.

Currently, the women and their children are being held at a house which had been "declared a sub-jail".
