Jail term for Bin Laden's family

Osama Bin Laden's three widows and two eldest daughters have been charged and sentenced for living in Pakistan illegally, their lawyer has confirmed.

They have received a jail term of 45 days in prison and been fined 10,000 rupees ($114; £71) each.

The women have already served a month of their sentence and are expected to be deported in two weeks.

They have been in Pakistani custody ever since US special forces killed the al-Qaeda chief last May.
