Algerians, freed from Guantanamo, still paying the price

In 2001, the Bosnian government, at the insistence of American officials, arrested six Algeria-born Bosnians and accused them of plotting to bomb the U.S. embassy in Sarajevo. Despite a Bosnian investigation that found no evidence for the charge, the six were turned over to U.S. authorities who flew them to Guantanamo. Now, five of the six have been released. But their lives have hardly returned to normal.
