Seeing Eye Dogs Are Haram! Omar Khadr losing his eyesight, lawyer says

Former Guantanamo detainee Omar Khadr is losing his eyesight and is no longer able to read or see clearly, according to his lawyer and educators who meet with him weekly in an Alberta prison.

The 28-year-old was blinded in his left eye during a 2002 firefight with U.S. special forces in Afghanistan, where he was shot and captured.

His lawyer, Dennis Edney, said Wednesday that Khadr is now almost blind in his right eye as well and likely will need to see a specialist and have surgery.

“It has happened pretty quickly,” Edney said
