Life After GuantanamoDownload audio (MP3)
BBC reporter Dawood Azami is likely the first Afghan journalist to visit Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba, where about 220 Afghans have been held by the U.S. military, making them the largest single nationality detained there. In a new BBC documentary, Azami follows former inmates released from Guantanamo as they struggle to readjust to civilian life in Afghanistan. Azami joins us to discuss the living conditions for Afghan prisoners at Guantanamo and their experiences back home, where they are often greeted as heroes.
