Pakistani Doctor Gets 33 Years

A Pakistani doctor who reportedly ran a fake vaccination campaign that helped the U.S. capture Osama bin Laden has been sentenced to at least 33 years in prison, a Pakistani local government official said Wednesday. The official said Shakil Afridi had been charged with treason. The vaccination campaign helped lead the CIA to bin Laden before U.S. forces killed him in a raid last year.
