US teen held in Kuwait returns home

Gulet Mohamed was stuck in Kuwait after being placed on the US no-fly list.



    Mohamed claims he was blindfolded, beaten and tortured while he was detained for nearly a month in Kuwait at the behest of the US authorities.

    "There are probably people out there being tortured like I was, whose voices are not being heard," he said.

    His return to the US was delayed for weeks because US authorities had apparently placed him on the no-fly list.

    His release follows a lawsuit filed earlier this week in the US District Court of Alexandria.
