Guantanamo detainee Binyam Mohamed talks to Jon Manel on The Interview

Binyam Mohamed has just been released after being held for nearly seven years-- four of them at the US's Guantanamo Bay detention camp.

During that time he was also held in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Morocco where he says he was tortured.

Born in Ethiopia, Binyam sought asylum in the UK. He became a Muslim, and in 2001 he travelled from Britain to Afghanistan. He says he was there to discover the "real" Islam. The Americans say he was there as a terrorist.

This week on The Interview Binyam Mohammed tells his story to Jon Manel.
