Kandahar hospital detainee is a Brit
A fourth suspected British al-Qa'eda was being questioned by MI6 agents in Afghanistan, as Downing Street said the United States might decide to send them to Britain for trial. Ruhal Ahmed, 20 - who, like two fellow prisoners, comes from Tipton, West Midlands - was detained last week in Kandahar after being tricked to leave a hospital believing he was to be handed over to the International Red Cross. Instead, he was seized by US special forces and passed to MI6 officers, who hoped to establish how extensive British links with al-Qa'eda were.
Good idea. Maybe the Mirror could put him up until his trial comes around.
