`Osama doc` Afridi a hero: Cameron Munter
Lahore: Outgoing US Ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter has described the 33-year sentence awarded to Dr Shakil Afridi, the doctor who helped the Central Intelligence Agency track down al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden, as an injustice, and described him as a hero who fought against an enemy of Pakistan.
"We think that he should be released," The News quoted Munter, as saying, and added that the US thought Dr Afridi`s act was beneficial to Pakistan.
He said keeping Dr Afridi imprisoned was deplorable.
Munter said Dr Afridi was loyal to the principles that underlined the elimination of all terrorists.
"I hope that he would be released at the earliest," Munter added.
