Convicted Australian al-Qaida supporter David Hicks landed Sunday in a private jet at his hometown of Adelaide, after spending more than five years at the US military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Hicks - the first terrorist suspect convicted by a US military commission in Cuba - was transferred to a South Australia state prison to serve the final seven months of his sentence for aiding al-Qaida in Afghanistan. "Mr. Hicks is now in the custody of the South Australian correctional services," Attorney General Philip Ruddock said in a statement.
