Convicted terrorist Omar Khadr has been sentenced to 40 years in prison by a U.S. military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay. Under a plea agreement, however, he will only serve eight years in prison. The sentence was much longer than the 25 years sought by prosecutors and is seen as symbolic. Khadr may apply to serve the remainder of his sentence in Canada after one year. The government is not obliged to agree to his transfer to Canada. Khadr pleaded guilty to providing material support for terrorism, murder and several other charges.
