Ahmed Belbacha, aged 38, and other Algerian nationals held in US custody in Guantánamo may be in imminent danger of forcible return to Algeria. Amnesty International has received information that the US authorities are intending to forcibly repatriate four or five Algerian detainees. One of these detainees is reported to be Ahmed Belbacha, a former UK resident of Algerian origin who has been cleared for release from Guantánamo. Amnesty International does not know the identity of the other detainees.
