A new video on Osama bin Laden's widows in a Pakistani prison shows a boy stacking teddy bears on a chair while another grabs a cricket bat. Three women dressed in black veils look on, while another kneels on a prayer mat to read from the Quran.

The footage obtained by Al Arabiya television shows the tight security surrounding the family of the terror mastermind as they serve 45-day sentences for illegally entering Pakistan, the Telegraph reported.

Another of bin Laden's wives is seen feeding a toddler.

The women and children have been in Pakistani custody ever since Osama was shot dead by US Navy Seals in May last year.

Pakistani authorities fear the widows may carry valuable information about who helped the family evade capture.

The daily said Pakistan will also want assurances that their home countries -- Yemen and Saudi Arabia -- will keep the family from public view.
