IN BRIEF / SAUDI ARABIA

May 30, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

Saudi Arabia has freed three former Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detainees who have completed their jail sentences in their home country, the state news agency SPA reported.

It said the three were handed over last year by the United States, which operates the prison at its naval base at Guantanamo Bay.

This month, Saudi Arabia said that it had received 15 Saudi detainees from Guantanamo Bay and that they would be put on trial in the kingdom if a review of their cases showed a trial was justified.
