Lawyers for a young Canadian detainee at the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay sued Canada's prime minister Friday to try to force him to repatriate the terror suspect. The suit filed in Federal Court argues that Prime Minister Stephen Harper needs to intervene before Toronto-born Omar Khadr stands trial for war crimes before an American military commission in October. The lawyers said Canada is obliged under international law to ensure Khadr's rehabilitation and social reintegration since he was just 15 when he is alleged to have lobbed a grenade that killed an American medic in Afghanistan in 2002.
