"A federal appeals court yesterday overturned an order releasing a Yemeni detainee from Guantanamo Bay and ruled that circumstantial evidence of terrorist ties can be enough to keep a prisoner. Government attorneys argued that Hussain Salem Mohammad Almerfedi stayed at an Al Qaeda-affiliated guesthouse based on the testimony of another Guantanamo detainee. A lower court judge found the testimony unreliable and ordered Almerfedi released, but the US Circuit Court of Appeals said the judge erred in that conclusion." (06/11/11)
