PARIS (AP) - A lawyer for recently released Guantanamo detainee
Lakhdar Boumediene says the 43-year-old Algerian is resting at a medical facility in France.
The country agreed to take him in after he was released from the Cuban prison yesterday following seven years of confinement. Doctors say he's in stable condition after ending a two-year hunger
strike. He had been force-fed at the prison camp through a nose tube.
His lawyer says in the next few days, Boumediene will move into an apartment and "start to resume normal life." He says he's "looking for some sort of charitable work."
He was suspected in a bomb plot against the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo when he was arrested in 2001 in Bosnia.
France's Foreign Ministry says he "was deemed innocent of all charges."
In June 2008, the Supreme Court ruled in Boumediene's case that Guantanamo detainees have the constitutional right to challenge their detention in civilian courts.
