Ahmed Mahalba, a translator who worked at the U.S. prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, is arrested at Boston's Logan Airport and charged with making false statements. Customs agents found documents and CDs in his bags that appeared to be classified information relating to the prison. Mahalba's arrest is the third involving a Guantanamo worker.
