Canadian Judge to Decide If Ex-Gitmo Detainee Omar Khadr Gets Bail

A Canadian judge is deciding whether a former Guantanamo Bay inmate who pleaded guilty to killing a U.S. soldier should get bail. A two-day hearing has concluded for Omar Khadr and the judge will announce her decision at a later date. The Toronto-born son of an alleged al-Qaida financier, Khadr pleaded guilty in 2010 to five war-crimes charges, including murder, for killing a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan when Khadr was 15. Khadr's lawyers say he should be released while he appeals his war-crimes conviction before a U.S. military court.
