In a move that could easily heighten tension among already strained relations with Pakistan, the United States has asked for access to the three wives Osama bin Laden left behind at his compound when he was killed.

According to a report from the Associated Press, the United States hope that interviewing the widows will shed some light onto whether or not bin Laden was being protected by Pakistani authorities. The women, along with several children, are believed to currently be in Pakistani Army custody.
