Khadr File Released

Published: Wednesday, 02/06/2008 12:00 am EST

A file containing details of Canadian Omar Khadr's capture and aspects of the murder case against him was accidentally released to reporters in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on Monday. The document raised questions as to whether the then-15-year-old actually threw the grenade that killed an American medic in Afghanistan in 2002. The revelation came as Mr. Khadr's trial resumed amidst calls that the case be thrown out because he was technically a child soldier at the time.
