A Yemeni human rights group said on Tuesday that it is working to repatriate al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden's youngest Yemeni wife Amal Abdulfattah, who was arrested in Pakistan following the U.S. raid.

Spokesman of the Sanaa-based National Organization for Defending Rights and Freedoms (HOOD), lawyer Abdulrahman Barman, told Xinhua that his organization is acting "on behalf of the family of Amal's tribe Al-Sada in the southern Yemeni province of Ibb."

"The 29-year-old Abdulfattah was shot in her leg during the U.S. raid on May 2. She is being held by the Pakistani authorities ... She is innocent and has no relations to the crimes of her husband, " Barman said.

"We will call on the Yemeni government to secure the release and repatriation of Amal and her daughter," he said.

Barman hopes for a support from the Yemeni government to bring Amal back to her native country. "HOOD is also preparing to contact international human rights organizations to provide help in this case," he added.
