[JURIST] A Canadian teenager being held at Guantanamo Bay has admitted to being trained by al-Qaida and killing an American soldier in Afghanistan, the US military disclosed. The US case against Omar Khadr, 17, includes charges that he trained with al-Qaida, conducted surveillance of US forces and planted land mines.
The military review panel hearing Khadr's case held unanimously that he was an enemy combatant and should remain in detention. The case information was released after a DC judge ordered the Department of Justice to justify Khadr's detention. The Department of Defense has more on the status review panels. CBC News has more on Khadr's family. Canada's National Post has more.
