What a shock. Another Gitmo detainee returns to a life of terror.
NATO troops killed Al-Qaeda leader and former Gitmo detainee in an overnight raid in eastern Afghanistan. Sabar Lal Melma, who was released from Guantanamo in 2007 after five years of detention, had been organizing attacks in eastern Kunar province and funding insurgent operations.
Nato forces say they have killed a former Guantanamo detainee who was a ”key affiliate of the al-Qaeda network” in an overnight raid in eastern Afghanistan.
Nato says Sabar Lal Melma organised attacks in eastern Kunar province and helped fund insurgent operations. The military alliance says he was in contact with senior al-Qaeda members in both Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Troops surrounded Melma’s house in Jalalabad city on Friday night. Nato spokesman Capt. Justin Brockhoff says Melma came out of the building holding an AK-47 assault rifle and was killed. Several other people were detained.
Who would have ever imagined that this Islamic terrorist would return to a life of jihad after his stay at Gitmo?
