Afghan national freed from Guantanamo Bay after 15 years

24/6/2022 19:23
        An Afghan prisoner who held in U.S. custody for nearly 15 years has finally been released from the Guantanamo Bay detention center, Afghanistan's Taliban government and an international human rights group said on Friday.
        
        Asadullah Haroon Gul's release was announced by Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban's deputy culture and information minister, who wrote on Twitter that Gul was one of the last two Afghan prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay.
        
        The U.S. opened the detention center under President George W. Bush in January 2002 after the 9/11 attacks and the invasion of Afghanistan. It was intended to hold and interrogate prisoners suspected of having links to al-Qaida or the Taliban at the time. Scores of suspects from multiple countries were later sent there.
        
        The detention center became notorious after reports emerged detainees were humiliated and tortured there.
