He met her when she was 15 years old and was so smitten with her he dumped one of his other four wives in order to marry her.
The Blaze – Amal Ahmed Abdul-Fattah, the youngest, most favored wife of Osama bin Laden, told interrogators that she has not left the compound where her husband was killed in five years. Abdul-Fattah, who was reportedly in the room when bin Laden was shot dead by Navy Seals, was injured in the leg during the raid. She is said to be in her late twenties.
The wife, who was wounded in the raid, said she lived in the compound in Abbottabad with eight of bin Laden’s children and five others from another family, Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas told CNN. All of them have been in Pakistani custody since the pre-dawn U.S. commando raid that killed bin Laden and will be returned to their country of origin, Abbas said.
