Doctor who helped capture Bin Laden imprisoned

A man considered a hero by Americans has been proclaimed a traitor by his own country.

A Pakistani doctor put his life on the line to help the CIA hunt down Osama Bin Laden. Now he faces 33 years in a Pakistani prison.

Dr. Shaquille Afreedee ran a phony vaccination program near Bin Laden's hideout.

He passed information on to the United States. For that, he was charged with spying.

U.S. officials have been working to get him released.
