Pakistani opposition leader and former cricket superstar Imran Khan has been released from prison. He was jailed last week after trying to lead a student protest against President Gen. Pervez Musharraf's declaration of emergency rule.

Khan talks with Michele Norris about his time in prison, his current hunger strike, and his future protest plans.
