Judge ordered repatriation of Guantanamo detainee to Yemen
Garrett Eisenhour at 12:00 AM ET

On June 26, 2010, a federal judge ordered the release of Guantanamo Bay detainee Mohammed Odaini, mandating his transfer back to his homeland of Yemen, despite the Obama administration's ban on repatriation to the Arab nation. In January 2010, the Obama administration suspended all transfers of Guantanamo Bay detainees to Yemen due to security concerns. Though the US transferred six Yemeni detainees back to their home country in December 2009, the majority of detainees remaining at the facility are Yemeni.
