'Rehabilitated' Saudi al-Qaeda member surrenders
A Saudi Arabian former Guantánamo Bay inmate who was “rehabilitated” in his homeland but then rejoined al- Qaeda in Yemen has surrendered to the Saudi authorities.
Adnan al-Sayegh, who went through the kingdom’s militant rehabilitation programme after returning from Guantánamo in March 2006, gave himself up in Yemen and expressed remorse, according to a Saudi interior ministry statement.
Sayegh and other former Guantánamo inmates who went through the interior ministry’s rehabilitation programme had escaped to Yemen and rejoined “the deviant group”, as Saudi Arabia calls al-Qaeda.
Sayegh was one of 85 suspected militants placed on a wanted list by the Saudi government three years ago. – (Reuters)
