With long, unkempt beards and wearing blue numbered uniforms, the men appeared at a news conference beside Sibghatullah Mujaddedi, head of Afghanistan's reconciliation commission. The commission assists with the release of detainees from Guantanamo and another U.S. prison at the Bagram military base north of Kabul.
All seven men said they were wrongly arrested, but that they were not beaten or mistreated in any way during their imprisonment.
