Canadian terror suspect hearing begins

Canadian terror suspect

A Canadian man facing extradition to the United States denied allegations on Monday that he supplied al-Qaida with weapons and conspired to kill Americans in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Abdullah Khadr, 28, disavowed earlier incriminating statements he made to police. Khadr has been held in Canada on a US warrant since his December 2005 arrest in Toronto. His father, Ahmed Said Khadr, was an alleged al-Qaida terrorist and financier, killed by Pakistani forces in 2003. A brother, Omar Khadr, is the last Western detainee held at Guantanamo Bay. Omar is accused of killing an American soldier with a grenade during a 2002 battle in Afghanistan. Another brother has acknowledged the family stayed with Osama bin Laden.
