New York, June 21 (ANI): Approximately 25 former terrorism suspects, who were once lodged at Guantanamo Bay, have returned to the extremist life even after they were put through an al Qaeda rehabilitation program, Saudi officials said yesterday.

According to the New York Post, the 25 militants were put through a re-education program and given financial help upon their release from the US naval base.

About a dozen former Guantanamo detainees fled to nearby Yemen, and others are back in jail or killed, said Abdulrahman al-Hadlaq, director general of the General Administration for Intellectual Security overseeing the rehabilitation. (ANI)
