The US has announced that five people held at Guantanamo Bay will face trial before a military commission.

Among them is Canadian detainee Omar Khadr. Khadr was only a teenager when he was brought to Guantanamo after being captured in Afghanistan for allegedly killing a US soldier there.

Canadian courts have ordered their government to request his repatriation. But the government is now fighting that ruling before the supreme court.

Al Jazeera’s Monica Villamizar sat down with Khadr’s sister Zaynab for an exclusive interview and began by asking her how her brother has been treated over the past seven years in detention.

The US will put him before a jury of military officers on multiple war crimes charges, including murder. His attorney Barry Coburn says he is looking forward to defending Omar Khadr, and he is not guilty of anything. Coburn also says Omar is holding up very well despite these extreme circumstances.
