US Court Weighs Guantanamo Case
A new US appeals court is due to hear the case of Canadian accused of killing a US soldier in Afghanistan. The US Court of Military Commission Review will hear a US government appeal against a decision by military judges in June to throw out Mr. Khadr's case. The case collapsed because US military authorities had failed to designate him an unlawful enemy combatant. They had sought to make Mr.Khadr one of the first Guantanamo Bay inmates to be tried before a military commission.
