Report: Former Guantanamo detainee carried out Iraq suicide attack
CAIRO, Egypt: Al-Arabiya television reports that a former Guantanamo detainee carried out a recent suicide bombing in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.
A cousin says Abdullah Saleh al-Ajmi, a Kuwaiti released from Guantanamo in 2005, was reported missing two weeks ago and his family learned of his death Thursday through a friend in Iraq.
The cousin, Salem al-Ajmi, told Al-Arabiya on Thursday that the former detainee was behind the latest attack in Mosul, although he did not provide more details.
Three suicide car bombers targeted Iraqi security forces in Mosul on April 26, killing at least seven people.
Mosul is believed to be the last urban stronghold of al-Qaida in Iraq.
