Osama bin Laden's family preparing to live incognito in Saudi Arabia
The 14 members of Osama bin Laden's family who survived the US Navy Seal raid which killed him in May last year were on Friday preparing to live incognito - but apparently in some luxury - in Saudi Arabia after being deported from Pakistan.
They were deported on the orders of a Pakistan court after being convicted of entering the country illegally, but it is understood officials wanted them removed from the country before next week's first anniversary of the raid in which the al-Qaead leader was killed
The family comprises three of his wives, 10 children and one grandchild.
One of his wives, Amal Ahmed al-Sadah, was deported to Saudi Arabia despite being a Yemeni, at the insistence members of her family who feared she might become a focal point for bin Ladenís followers or alternatively targeted by al-Qaeda militants.
In Saudi Arabia, the family members are expected to live with bin Ladenís extended family.
Bin Ladenís half-brother, Bakr bin Mohammed Binladin, is chairman of Saudi Binladin, the kingdomís biggest construction company and the foundation of the familyís fortune.
