A U.S. appeals court says an Algerian protesting his Guantanamo detention deserves a new lower court review. The review should determine whether he was part of al-Qaida.
The three-judge panel reversed a decision that concluded Belkacem Bensayah's imprisonment was legal because he was an al-Qaida supporter.
U.S. Circuit Judge Douglas Ginsburg said the government presented no direct evidence of actual communication between Bensayah and any al-Qaida member.
