U.S. authorities in Pakistan interviewed three of Osama bin Laden's widows on Friday but gathered little new information from them, according to a U.S. official.
Bin Laden died in a May 2 raid on his Pakistan compound by a team of U.S. SEALs who seized what U.S. officials describe as a "treasure trove of intelligence material."
"The U.S. has questioned bin Laden's widows, but they're not particularly forthcoming yet," a U.S. official with knowledge of the investigation said on condition of anonymity.
Pentagon spokesman Col. David Lapan confirmed that U.S. government representatives had been able to question the wives. He declined to specify what agency the U.S. government officials represented or to offer any details of the meeting.
U.S. authorities are working with Pakistani officials to gain additional access to the women.
Pakistan has said it will repatriate the three widows and their children. One is from Yemen and two from Saudi Arabia.
