JEDDAH - Saudi Arabia has allowed the family of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden into the kingdom on humanitarian grounds, state media reported on Saturday, almost a year after US special forces killed the world's most wanted man in Pakistan.

Pakistan deported the family this week, ending months of speculation about the fate of his wives and children who were detained by Pakistani security forces after the May 2 raid.

A Saudi official was quoted by the state Saudi Press Agency (SPA) as saying the family arrived in the kingdom on Thursday.
