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.
