Pakistan Questions Lawfulness of Bin Laden Killing

When the stealth helicopters lifted off with the body of bin Laden, his 29-year-old wife and three children were left behind. Bin Laden's wife charged at U.S. forces and was shot in the leg during the raid. Her 13-year-old daughter witnessed her father's death. Both are now in the custody of Pakistani intelligence officials.

Pakistani officials questioned the lawfulness of the raid Thursday. Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, did not call Pakistani officials about the raid until nearly two hours after it was completed, officials told ABC News.

Pakistani intelligence officials are not letting U.S. investigators talk to bin Laden's wife and daughter for now. U.S. officials want to know who visited bin Laden's compound, where the family had lived before and the whereabouts of bin Laden's right hand man and the second in command of al Qaeda, Ayman al Zawahiri.

ABC News' Jim Sciutto, Luis Martinez, Brian Ross and Lisa Jones contributed to this report.
