US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Friday that Shakeel Afridi, a Pakistani doctor, was a prime source of information leading to the assassination of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

Speaking in an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes," Panetta expressed that he was unhappy over the treatment of the doctor. "I’m very concerned about what the Pakistanis did with this individual… who in fact helped provide intelligence that was very helpful with regards to this operation," he said.
