KENNEWICK, Wash. -

Two teenagers have been sentenced to a combined 20 years in prison for abducting one of their great-grandmothers and driving with her in the trunk of her car for about 200 miles before she escaped.
    
The Tri-City Herald reports a 17-year-old boy, Dyllan K Martin, was sentenced Thursday to 9-1/2 years for his role in kidnapping his great-grandmother.
    
In court, the teen apologized, saying it was the worst decision he has ever made.
    
A 16-year-old boy, Billy Joseph Underwood, who admitted to executing most of the plot to gag, bind and kidnap the woman, was sentenced to just over 10 years. He also apologized during sentencing.
    
A statement by his 87-year-old grandmother was read telling the teens she's sorry for what they've been through in the recent months and that they should behave in prison.
    
A third co-defendant, Katelyn Kenfield, was ordered to serve up to 2-1/2 years in a state juvenile institution. She is appealing.
    
Both boys pleaded guilty to kidnapping, burglary and theft of a motor vehicle charges.

    PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) - Shakil Afridi has languished in jail for years — since 2011, when the Pakistani doctor used a vaccination scam in an attempt to identify Osama bin Laden’s home, aiding U.S. Navy Seals who tracked and killed the al-Qaida leader. Americans might wonder how Pakistan could imprison a man who helped track down the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks.
