A former Guantanamo detainee has reportedly been killed in a shootout between the Yemeni Army and Houthi rebels in northern Yemen. The former detainee, Fahd Saleh Suleiman al Jutayli, was captured in Pakistan after fleeing the Tora Bora Mountains in 2001. He was repatriated to his native Saudi Arabia in May 2006.
According to the Yemen Post, two other former Gitmo detainees – Yusuf al Shehri and Othman al Ghamdi – called their families to tell them Jutayli had been killed in the fighting and asked them to inform Jutayli’s family.
The report also notes that al-Jutayli told his interrogators prior to his release that he’d never join another jihad. This is a common feature of these ex-prisoners who re-join terrorist groups: They frequently “repent,” and pass the Saudi “rehabiliation” program. Add another to the list.
