Biden administration transfers first detainee from Guantanamo

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Biden administration transfers first detainee from Guantanamo” – below is their description.

The first Guantanamo Bay prisoner released under the Biden administration has been repatriated to Morocco.

It marks a break from former President Donald Trump’s policy which was to transfer prisoners to a third country.

Abdul Latif Nasser, a Moroccan prisoner, was captured by Pakistani agents in 2001 and sent to Guantanamo the following year.

The US alleged he trained in al-Qaeda camps and cooperated with the group’s leader, Osama bin Laden.

Al Jazeera’s Kimberly Halkett reports from the White House, Washington, DC, the US.
