Islamabad, May 9: Days after killing Osama bin Laden, the United States is now gunning after his wives who are held by the Pakistani government. An American official has been reported as saying that they want to quiz the bin Laden women to find out if any Pakistani official knew of the terror lynchpin's stay at Abbottabad.

There was no reaction from the Pakistani government on May 8.

Three women were left behind by US Navy SEALS in a late-night operation on May 1 that led to the gunning down of Osama bin Laden in a mansion at Abbottabad in Pakistan. Information from the women can also expose the daily life of Laden and his life after the US invasion of Afghanistan in the aftermath of 9/11 attacks.

Tom Donilon, the US National Security Advisor has told NBC's "Meet the Press" that the US government has seen no evidence of the Pakistani government's collusion with the deceased al-Qaeda chief, but insisted that officials of the south-east Asian country, "need to provide us with intelligence, by the way, from the compound that they've gathered, including access to Osama bin Laden's three wives."

Pakistani government has denied of any knowledge about Laden's existence in the garrison town of Abbottabad and terms it as an intelligence failure, but governments in the Western countries have cast their doubts on the claim.
