Guantanamo case: six former inmates go on trial in France

A total of seven French citizens were held at Guantanamo, and all have been sent back to France. One was freed immediately with no charges filed. French judicial officials have said that Mustaq Ali Patel, who has joint French and Indian nationality, had no link to Islamic extremism.

The other six were put under investigation for "criminal association with a terrorist enterprise." Five of them - Imad Kanouni, Nizar Sassi, Mourad Benchellali, Ridouane Khalid and Khaled ben Mustafa - have been released from jail pending trial. Another suspect, Brahim Yadel, is still behind bars, the AP reports.
