Ex-Gitmo Militants Are Free To Move Around Qatar: Source

The five Taliban militants freed in exchange for U.S. captive soldier Bowe Berdahl will not be locked up while in Qatar, a diplomatic source in the Persian Gulf region said Tuesday. The Afghan detainees from the Guantanamo Bay prison will be watched closely during their one-year travel ban, but their movements within the Arab emirates are not restricted, the source said. The men would be banned from playing any political role in the Taliban or speaking to the media, the source said.
