Local media in Pakistan is reporting that the widows of Osama Bin Laden, as well a number of children, are being deported from the country.
It is thought Bin Laden's family will be sent to Saudi Arabia later on Thursday.
The family's lawyer, Aamir Khalil told Reuters that the family is expected to arrive in Saudi Arabia early Friday morning.
"Yes, they're being deported to Saudia Arabia," said Khalil, adding that the family was booked on a "special flight".
A Pakistani court in April charged Bin Laden's widows and two of his grown-up daughters with illegal entry and residency in the country.
Bin Laden's two Saudi and one Yemeni widows, together with their children, have been living under the protection of the authorities in Pakistan since the al-Qaeda chief was killed by US Navy SEALs on May 2, 2011.
