Youngest Gitmo Detainee Pleads Guilty to All Charges
The youngest prisoner at Guantanamo Bay has pleaded guilty to all five terrorism charges against him on Monday. Canadian Omar Khadr, who has been held at the US detention facility since he was 15 years old and is now 24, took a plea deal to limit his sentence. Khadr is accused of throwing a grenade that killed a US soldier during a battle in Afghanistan in 2002. Khadr is the last Western prisoner at Guantanamo. His trial has drawn international criticism because of his young age at the time of capture. Previous reports suggest Khadr could receive an eight-year prison sentence, most of which could be served in Canada.
