Four Afghan Guantanamo detainees repatriated: Pentagon

Four detainees held at the Guantanamo Bay U.S. military prison have been repatriated to Afghanistan, the Pentagon said Saturday.
The Department of Defense said that the Afghan men – Shawali Khan, Khi Ali Gul, Abdul Ghani, and Mohammed Zahir – had been moved from the prison after a comprehensive review of their case.
"As a result of that review, which examined a number of factors, including security issues, these men were unanimously approved for transfer by the six departments and agencies comprising the task force," a Pentagon statement said.
