Rocco Galati, an attorney representing the family of Abdur Rahman Khadr, said Tuesday that Khadr, 20, was released from U.S. detention in late October and sent to Afghanistan. "He is a Canadian citizen," Galati said. "He has no other nationality and they are shipping him back to Afghanistan with no money, no identification and only the clothes on his back." Khadr was seized in Afghanistan.
Officials said Khadr's father, Ahmed Said Khadr, an Egyptian- born Canadian, is an al Qaeda leader with close connections to Osama bin Laden. Unconfirmed reports said that Ahmed Said Khadr and another of his sons were killed last month during a shootout with Pakistani forces at the Afghan-Pakistani border.
