Guantanamo Inmate Release Due Monday

LONDON (AP) - A human rights lawyer says former British resident
Binyam Mohamed is due to be released from Guantanamo Bay on Monday.

The Ethiopian national has been held at the U.S. military prison
since September 2004. Terrorism charges against him were dropped
last year.

Britain's Foreign Office released a statement Friday saying
Mohamed would be returned to the U.K. "as soon as the practical
arrangements can be made" but has repeatedly declined to say when
exactly they expect him.

Lawyer Clive Stafford Smith could not say on Sunday how or when
his client would arrive in the U.K.

Mohamed's military lawyer Lt. Col. Yvonne Bradley says she has
no confirmation of when Mohamed is due to return.
