(YAHOO! NEWS) — The Pakistani doctor who helped the CIA find Osama bin Laden has been sentenced to 33 years in jail for treason.

Shakil Afridi, 48, had been accused of running a fake hepatitis B vaccination program, collecting DNA samples reportedly used by U.S. intelligence officers to track bin Laden to Abbottabad, where Navy SEALs killed him in a raid on his compound last year.
