Abdul Latif Nasir was captured by the United States in late 2001 in Afghanistan, where he was accused of traveling to do jihad.

Now he is finally released from the controversial Guantanamo Bay in eastern Cuba and sent home to Morocco.

He becomes the first prisoner in the camp to be released since President Joe Biden came to power. Biden states that he wants to close down the camp, where 39 people are still in custody.
