From the Daily Times: Bin Laden’s bodyguard freed by Pakistan

Pakistan has freed a senior al-Qaeda commander, who served as a bodyguard to Osama bin Laden, according to a senior security source, raising fresh questions about the country’s commitment to tackling terrorism

Amin al-Haq, who escaped from Afghanistan with the al-Qaeda leader in 2001 and went on to become a key financial aide, was detained in Lahore three years ago by Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency.

A senior security source in Peshawar, where he had been held, said the ISI had passed al-Haq on to the police before he was released earlier this month.
