An undated handout picture released by Reprieve UK on September 25, 2015 shows British national Shaker Aamer wavingShaker Aamer, the last British resident held at Guantanamo Bay, is to be released by US authorities to Britain after over 13 years at the military prison, officials said Friday. Saudi-born Aamer is alleged to have been a key British-based recruiter and financier for the Al-Qaeda militant network and purportedly worked for Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan, according to US military documents. Aamer’s lawyer Clive Stafford Smith said that his client, captured in Afghanistan in 2001, would probably not be released until the end of next month.
