Obaidullah – Muslim terrorist

A trained bomb maker from Afghanistan who was once suspected of being a member of Al Qaeda is set to be freed from Guantanamo Bay.

The 37-year-old, known only as Obaidullah, was arrested in Khowst in 2002 along with two cousins after troops raided his home and found 23 landmines and detailed instructions on how to use them.

Now after 15 years behind bars he is due to be released after a Periodic Review Board (PBR) said he ‘has not expressed any intent to re-engage in terrorist activities.’
