Guilty plea from detainee Hicks


"Australian detainee David Hicks has pleaded guilty at a military court at Guantanamo Bay to a charge of providing material support for terrorism.

The 31-year-old Muslim convert was accused of attending al-Qaeda training camps and fighting with the Taleban.

The plea means that Hicks, who has been at the camp for five years, is likely to return home to serve his sentence.

Hicks is the first detainee at the detention camp to face terror charges under new US rules.

He was charged under the new Military Commissions Act, which human rights groups condemn."
