Khadr made an unexpected public appearance at a Calgary showing of a new documentary about his life Friday night. He was released in May from prison pending appeal of his strongly condemned war crimes conviction.
After 13 years in custody, an Alberta judge released Khadr on $5,000 bail this May pending the appeal of his widely condemned war crimes convictions by an American military tribunal.
Khadr, a 28-year-old Canadian who was captured by American forces in Afghanistan in 2002 and spent 10 years in Guantanamo, confessed to throwing a grenade that injured a soldier and killed another. He has since recanted.
