Former Guantanamo Bay Inmate Omar Khadr to Be Released on Bail

A former Guantanamo Bay inmate convicted of killing a U.S. soldier will be released on bail Thursday after a judge refused a last-ditch attempt by the Canadian government to keep him jailed. Court of Appeal Justice Myra Bielby declined a stay request of a lower court judge's decision to grant Omar Khadr bail while he appeals his U.S. war crimes conviction. He was convicted of war crimes, including throwing a grenade when he was 15 years old that killed a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan in 2002.
