Guantanamo ex-inmate awaits bail decision in Canada

Canadian Omar Khadr, who was just 15 when he was captured on an Afghan battlefield in 2002 and sent to the US jail in Guantanamo Bay, sought early release WednesdayCanadian Omar Khadr, who was just 15 when he was captured on an Afghan battlefield in 2002 and sent to the US jail in Guantanamo Bay, sought early release Wednesday. A bail hearing in Canada, where he was transferred in 2012, concluded at midday. Local media described his appearance in an Edmonton, Alberta court sporting jeans, a white golf shirt and a neatly trimmed beard, and often grinning. Attorney Nathan Whitling told the Canadian judge that Khadr has the right to request release — the same as any other prisoner — while his US convictions are being appealed in a special court in Virginia.
