Sixteen Saudi Arabians who were released from the US prison in Guantanamo Bay returned home on Thursday, the kingdom's interior minister said. "Their release was the outcome of efforts exerted by Saudi authorities," Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz told Saudi's official news agency. The 16 arrived in the kingdom on a private Saudi plane and will be "subject to the Saudi system," the interior minister said without elaborating. It was not immediately known when they were released from Guantanamo.
