(Guantanamo Bay U.S. Naval Base, Cuba)  --  Omar Khadr has pled guilty to five terrorism charges in a U.S. war crimes tribunal at Guantanamo Bay.  At age 15, the Canadian was captured in Afghanistan.  He has admitted to conspiring with al-Qaeda and killing an American soldier with a grenade.

His guilty plea is part of a plea deal that could require Khadr, who is now 24, to serve one more year at the Guantanamo military prison and then seven years in Canada.  Khadr is the fifth Guantanamo terrorist detainee to be convicted since the tribunals were established following the deadly September 11th attacks on the U.S.
