"Good news from Guantanamo," tweeted Mansoor Adayfi. "After 20 years of indefinite detention."

"The prisoner, Sufyian Barhoumi, 48, was captured in Pakistan in March 2002 and soon taken to Guantánamo Bay, where he never faced trial, writes Carol Rosenberg,


"He was notified in August 2016 that he was eligible for release, but his case was sidelined by a Trump administration policy that generally halted transfers."

Sufyian Barhoumi had been held at the military prison since 2002, even after being cleared for transfer in the last weeks of the Obama administration.
