Some wives of Osama Bin Laden think his youngest wife, Amal al-Sadah from Yemen, may have tipped off the terror mastermind to the Americans.
This is apparently the latest juicy detail to have escaped closed door questioning of Bin Laden's captured family by Pakistani interrogators.
A Pakistani interrogator said two older widows of Bin Laden, both Saudi women, accuse the 30-year-old Al Sadah of betraying their husband.
“The older wives think the younger one tipped off the Americans or was tracked when she came to join him,” a Pakistani interrogator said, according to Tehran Times. “It's vicious,” he added.
Bin Laden was living in his Abottabad den with three wives and many children. Amal Al-Sadah was reportedly wounded while trying to save her husband who was in enemy firing line as U.S. Navy SEALs stormed his compound early this month.
Now the wives disagree among themselves who tried to save the terror leader. The debriefing of the women by Pakistani interrogators suggests that Bin Laden may not exactly have had a blissful stay in the house after all.
“It's a well-known fact that when you have two older wives and then this young one comes along half their age, they don't like it,” said an interrogator.
The joke doing the rounds in Pakistan is that Bin laden gave himself away to the Americans as he found his life with three wives and many children too hot to handle!
Apart from Al-Sadah, the other wives who lived with him were 62-year-old Khaira Husain Sabir, known as Umm Hamza and 54-year-old Umm Khalid.
Bin Laden married a woman seven years his senior in 1982. The woman, known as Umm Hamza, was supposedly a descendant of the Prophet's family and had doctorate in child psychology, according to about.com.
Umm Khaled, another doctorate holder, hailed from Medina and had a PhD in Arabic grammar. There were three daughters and a son in this marriage.
Osama bin Laden chose his fifth wife Amal al-Sadah from Yemen, the land of his ancestors. She married the terror leader at the age of 17 and lived with him till his last day. She was with him in his final moments, either willingly trying to act as a human shield or pushed in front by her cowering husband.
The woman, who is 27 years old now, had reportedly married the terror ring leader when she was just 17. Amal gifted Bin Laden with a child a few days after he took the lives of 3,000 people by attacking the twin towers of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The female child was named Safiya.
