Youngest Guantanamo Bay prisoner Omar Khadr leaves for Canada

The youngest prisoner to be held at the Guantanamo Bay detention centre has been returned to his native Canada.

Omar Khadr had been held at the US base in Cuba since 2002, after being detained in Afghanistan aged 15.

A military plane flew Khadr, the last Westerner at Guantanamo, to Canada early on Saturday.

The Canadian Public Safety Minister, Vic Toews, said Khadr will serve the remainder of his prison term in Canada.
