Suspected al-Qaida terrorists won't face capital punishment

The five men, including one accused of killing a Special Forces medic, are being held at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention center. There are now a total of nine detainees there who have been charged with criminal offenses. The decision was made not to seek capital punishment in the five latest cases - the same decision made in the four earlier cases, according to Pentagon spokesman Maj. Michael Shavers.

Toronto-born Omar Khadr was charged with murder, attempted murder, aiding the enemy and conspiracy, for allegedly tossing a grenade that killed a U.S. Special Forces medic while fighting with the Taliban in Afghanistan and for planting mines to target U.S. convoys.

The other four suspects were charged with conspiracy. They are Ghassan Abdullah al Sharbi and Jabran Said bin al Qahtani of Saudi Arabia; Sufyian Barhoumi of Algeria; and Binyam Ahmed Muhammad of Ethiopia. The charges involve an alleged conspiracy involving the use of roadside bombs and, in one case, information on how to make a so-called "dirty bomb" that would release radioactivity, according to the complaint, the AP reports.

There are about 500 detainees at Guantanamo, many captured in Afghanistan more than three years ago.

Khadr's American lawyer, Muneer Ahmad, has claimed that Khadr was tortured by U.S. military police. A.M.
