Libyan rebels in the eastern port city of Derna are being trained by a Libyan who had been arrested after the US-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2011, and imprisoned for six years in Guantánamo, The Telegraph reported Sunday.

According to The Telegraph, another senior Libyan rebel commander in the same city had also been held in Guantánamo following the Afghanistan invasion, and both men were said to have been released to Libya in 2008.

Both men were convicted as having ties to Islamist, terrorist groups.
