Text size Aa Aa

A doctor who was key to the US hunting down Osama bin Laden has been charged with murder by Pakistan.

Shakil Afridi is a hero to US officials but Pakistan has already tried to prosecute him for being a member of the militant Islamic group Lashkar-e-Islam, which he denies.

The murder charge relates to the death of a patient eight years ago.
