A handout picture released by the family shows Fawzi al Odah, center, posing with his father and a relative as he was welcomed at a military hospital in Kuwait City upon his arrival in the Gulf state on Nov. 6, 2014 — the same day he was released from Guantánamo after nearly 13 years in U.S. custody. After a week, Fawzi al Odah will be transferred to a government-run rehabilitation center for an unspecified period but his close relatives will be allowed to visit him, according to AFP/Getty Images, which provided the image.
