French doctors say ex-Gitmo inmate is OK
Advertisements [?]

PARIS (AP) French doctors for a former Guantanamo Bay prisoner who recently ended a more than two year hunger strike have said he's in stable condition, the man's lawyer said Saturday.

Robert Kirsch, a Boston attorney representing Lakhdar Boumediene, said the 43-year-old Algerian is resting at a medical facility in France and is expected to be discharged sometime next week. Boumediene arrived in France on Friday, after being held for seven years in at the U.S. camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

French authorities agreed to take him in a gesture to President Obama, who has promised to close the prison camp by January and faces the thorny problem of where to send dozens of prisoners who fear face mistreatment if returned to their homeland.
