The Pentagon and the Canadian government announced that Canadian and former Taliban child soldier Omar Khadr was repatriated from the Guantánamo Bay detention center to Canada on Sept. 29, 2012. Khadr was 15 years old when he was captured by U.S. forces in Afghanistan in 2002 and was the youngest prisoner at Guantánamo at the time of his transfer.
