A former British resident imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay since 2002 claims he is about to be released, the man's attorney said Sunday. Binyam Mohamed said in a letter to his attorney that "several reliable sources" told him his release to Britain had recently been approved. The US accused him of plotting a radioactive bomb attack on the United States, but the allegation was withdrawn in October. Mohamed said he had been on hunger strike to protest his confinement.
