Pakistani Taliban vows to kill bin Laden doctor

The Pakistani Taliban vowed on Thursday to kill Shakeel Afridi, the jailed Pakistani doctor accused of helping the CIA in the search for Osama bin Laden, a spokesman for the militant group told CNN.

"We will cut him into pieces when we find him," Pakistani Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan told CNN by phone. "He spied for the U.S. to hunt down our hero Osama bin Laden."

Pakistani officials say Afridi is being held in a prison in the city of Peshawar in northwest Pakistan.

    Why are the Pakistanis so anti-American? A Pakistani rarely would help an American. And if a Pakistani (like this doctor) would like to help America, the other Pakistanis (like the Taliban) would like to kill him just for that reason. These are really hateful anti-American people. And we continue to call them our "ally".

      Why are Indians so anti pakistanis? Indians need to move on as we have put the pearl necklace around their necks and will start the squeeze soon. I think Pakistanis love Americans. They have been friends for over 60 years now. In fact Pakistanis were the pioneers in Chinese-American relationship long before India was on the map. India was communist at that time and probably still is.
