Guantanamo Kid : The True Story of Mohammed El-Gharani, Paperback / softback Book

Guantanamo Kid : The True Story of Mohammed El-Gharani Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Saudi Arabia offers few prospects for the bright young Mohammed El-Gharani.

With roots in Chad, Mohammed is treated like a second-class citizen.

His access to healthcare and education are restricted; nor can he make the most of his entrepreneurial spirit.

At the age of 14, having scraped together some money as a street trader, Mohammed seizes an opportunity to study in Pakistan.

One Friday in Karachi, Mohammed is detained during a raid on his local mosque.

After being beaten and interrogated, he is sold to the American government by the Pakistani forces as a member of Al-Qaida with links to Osama Bin Laden, but Mohammed has heard of neither.

The Americans fly him first to Kandahar and then to Guantanamo Bay. In Guantanamo Kid, Jerome Tubiana and Alexandre Franc tell the eye-opening, heart-wrenching story of one of Guantanamo's youngest detainees.
