Guantanamo prisoner charged in roadside attacks

MIAMI — The U.S. military is preparing for another war crimes trial at Guantanamo Bay.

Pentagon officials say charges have been approved against an alleged senior member of al-Qaida for offenses that include planning roadside bombing attacks against U.S. and allied troops and civilians in Afghanistan.

Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi has been held at the U.S. base in Cuba since April 2007 and has been classified by the Defense Department as a “high-value” detainee.

A Pentagon statement Tuesday lists war crimes charges that include terrorism, murder of protected persons and attacking civilians. He faces up to life in prison on all but one of the charges.

A military lawyer appointed to represent him did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Two other war crimes cases are in pretrial stage.
