Omar Khadr's confession can be used at Guantanamo trial
GUANTANAMO BAY U.S. NAVAL BASE, Cuba (Reuters) - A U.S. military judged ruled on Monday that Canadian prisoner Omar Khadr's confessions to interrogators can be used as evidence against him in his murder and terrorism conspiracy trial at Guantanamo.
Khadr's lawyers claimed the statements were illegally obtained through torture and cruelty, and had asked the judge to throw them out. The judge rejected that argument.
