Omar Khadr, a Canadian, was 15 when he was accused in 2002 of killing a United States soldier in Afghanistan during a battle. He was subsequently imprisoned and interrogated in Afghanistan and at the Guantánamo Bay detention center in Cuba, where he is still held.
Video footage of his interrogation from February 2003 was released by his lawyers on July 14, 2008. It shows Mr. Khadr pleading with a Canadian intelligence agent for help and, at one point, shows him displaying chest and back wounds that had still not healed months after his capture in Afghanistan.
