Video: Eid joy for Guantanamo boy

Guantanamo Bay's youngest inmate freed last month celebrates with family.

    The US government labelled him a terrorist and detained him at Guantanamo Bay, when he was just 12 years old.

    Now, Mohammed Jawad is back in Afghanistan, celebrating the Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr with his family.

    Jawad was released from captivity last month, when a military judge ruled he had been forced to confess to an attack on US soldiers.

    From Kabul, Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr has this report.
