Omar Khadr sentenced to 40 years by military panel
A U.S. military jury in Guantanamo, Cuba, has sentenced Canadian-born Omar Khadr to 40 years in prison after he pleaded guilty last Monday to five war crimes, including killing an American soldier in Afghanistan in July 2002. But because of a plea deal, his sentence will be capped at eight years.
