Guantanamo Bay
By Rahim Faiez

Seven Afghan men on Saturday arrived in their home country " weary, angry and proclaiming their innocence " after years of imprisonment in the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

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.
