Saudi Guantanamo Veteran and Al-Qaida Commander Mohammed al-Harbi Reportedly Surrenders in Yemen

Via CT Blog -

News agencies are now reporting that Saudi national Mohammed al-Harbi (a.k.a. Abul Hareth Mohammed al-Awfi)--a former Guantanamo Bay detainee [detainee no. 333] accused of participating in jihadi conflicts in Chechnya and Afghanistan, who was later released and rejoined Al-Qaida in Saudi Arabia--has surrendered without a fight to authorities in Yemen. I recently profiled al-Harbi in my report published by the NEFA Foundation, "The Eleven: Saudi Guantanamo Veterans Returning to the Fight."
