Brothers leave Guantanamo Bay without charge after almost 20 years

Two brothers from Pakistan who were held in the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay for nearly 20 years have been released without charge.

Abdul and Mohammed Ahmed Rabbani were arrested in Pakistan in 2002.

The Pentagon said Abdul Rabbani operated an al-Qaeda safe house, while his brother organised travel and funds for the group’s leaders.

The brothers alleged that they were tortured by CIA officers, before being transferred to Guantanamo.

Both have now been repatriated to Pakistan. Read the full story on the BBC.
