Algerian is 31st Guantanamo detainee ordered freed

A federal judge Friday ordered the Obama administration to free a long-held Guantanamo captive who fled his native Algeria years ago and kicked around Europe as a construction worker for a decade before his capture in Pakistan. Judge Gladys Kessler's order to free Farhi Saeed bin Mohammed, 48, is still under seal, so her precise findings have not been made public.
