    Canada is facing criticism from human rights groups for its attempts to deport a 24-year-old immigrant to Somalia. Abdoul Abdi was born in Saudi Arabia and he says he has no ties to Somalia, where there have been years of violence from the armed group al-Shabab.

    For now, the deportation is postponed while his lawyers ask a court to allow him to stay.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Lak reports from Toronto.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
