Guantánamo Kid : The True Story of Mohammed El-Gharani
by Alexandre Franc and Jérôme Tubiana




Overview -
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 Guant namo Bay.

In Guant namo Kid, J r me Tubiana and Alexandre Franc tell the eye-opening, heart-wrenching story of one of Guant namo's youngest detainees. Written in collaboration with Mohammed El-Gharani, Guant namo Kid reflects as closely as possible his memories and experiences of life in the camp.
