Muhammad Rahim al-Afghani, who has been held at Guantanamo since 2007, isn't letting his incarceration get in the way of his longing for the fairer sex.

In fact, on his Match.com profile, he has his location set at "Guantanamo Bay" followed by the tag line "detained but ready to mingle."

Perhaps on his date he could talk about his career as a close associate of Osama bin-Laden, which is what the US alleges as the reason for his detention.

According to the Daily Mail, al-Afghani's Match.com profile, which is run by his lawyer, has generated interest from available women.
