KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) Sudan's state radio says a former cook for al-Qaida held in Guantanamo has returned to Khartoum after being released.
Omdurman radio said Ibrahim al-Qosi was flown by a U.S. Air Force aircraft to Khartoum airport early Wednesday. He told the station that he had a difficult time in "unfair detention in an infamous Guantanamo prison."
He pleaded guilty in July 2010 to supporting terrorism by providing logistical support to al-Qaida and was sentenced to 14 years, all but two of which were suspended by the Pentagon legal officer overseeing Guantanamo tribunals.
The U.S. Embassy in Khartoum could not be reached for comment.
Al-Qosi was taken to Guantanamo in 2002, one of the first terror suspects to be sent there.
