Former Afghan prisoners enjoy freedom in Kabul

On the orders of President Karzai, Afghanistan has released 65 prisoners, many of whom the United States say are linked to the killing of international peacekeepers and Afghan troops.

The US said it had strong evidence against many of the detainees, linking them to bombings and other attacks.

But President Karzai said most of the prisoners were innocent and called the prison at the Bagram airbase a "Taliban-producing" factory.

David Loyn met some of the prisoners now enjoying their freedom.
