Bin Laden 'lived in five houses'

Osama bin Laden lived in five safe houses while on the run in Pakistan and fathered four children - two of them born in government hospitals, according to one his widows.

The details of the al Qaida leader's life as a fugitive in Pakistan are contained in the interrogation report of Amal Ahmed Abdel-Fatah al-Sada, his Yemeni widow.

They raise fresh questions over how bin Laden was able to remain undetected for so long.

Details from the report were first published by the Pakistani newspaper Dawn and the Associated Press has obtained a copy.

Al-Sada is in Pakistani custody, with bin Laden's two other wives and several children.

They were arrested after the US special forces raid that killed bin Laden in May in his final hideout in the town of Abbottabad.
