A Guantanamo inmate captured in Afghanistan at the age of 14 has become the first to give an interview from inside the camp, claiming he was beaten by his jailors.

Mohammed al-Gharani, who has spent seven years in the camp, said that he had been hit with batons until his teeth broke and tear-gassed after refusing to leave his cell. The mistreatment started 20 days before Barack Obama became the American president, he said.

“Since then I’ve been subjected to it almost every day,” he said. “Since Obama took charge he has not shown us that anything will change.”

Mr Guarani, whose family is from Chad but who grew up in Saudi Arabia, is one of a number of Guantanamo prisoners whose release has been ordered by an American judge. Evidence that he had fought with al-Qaeda in Afghanistan was found to be “unreliable”.

Such prisoners have been allowed to make phone calls to members of their families, but Mr Guarani spoke to a former Guantanamo inmate who works for al-Jazeera, the international Arabic television channel, instead.
