After More than Six Years, Al Jazeera Cameraman Sami al-Haj Released from Guantanamo Bay

Arrested in Pakistan in December 2001, Sami al-Haj spent nearly six-and-a-half years at Guantanamo without charge or trial. He had been on a more than a year-long hunger strike to protest his imprisonment. We hear al-Haj¹s first public remarks from his hospital bed in Sudan and speak to his brother, Asim al-Haj.
