Islamabad, May 6 : Pakistani intelligence agents  are interrogating three women -- all wives of Osama bin Laden -- who were captured during the U.S.-led raid on Sunday, reports ABC News.

The wives, including the youngest -- 29-year-old Yemeni Amal Ahmed Abdul Fatah -- were all living with bin Laden inside the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

According to one of the women, bin Laden confined himself to two rooms in the house, including the bedroom where he was killed. He never left those rooms, she claims, for the five years he was hiding there. "He used two rooms on one of the floors," Asad Munir, a former ISI commander, told ABC News.

"He never went anywhere." The three wives are in custody in Islamabad, and are facing firm but nonviolent questioning, a former intelligence official said.

"We give them a questionnaire, with 20 questions," Munir said.

"We change the order of questions every three or four days." Investigators then look for any differences in the answers. "For telling lies you have to have very good memory," Munir said.

"There's a way to find out. No one will tell you the first day the correct answer." U.S. officials have requested but have been denied access to the wives so far.
 
Officials also have in custody bin Laden's 13-year-old daughter, who saw her father killed "in front of her eyes," a senior Pakistani security official told ABC News in an exclusive interview Wednesday. They are also questioning six or seven other children who were captured in the raid.
