The Bush administration has decided to allow Salim Ahmed Hamdan, convicted of aiding al-Qaida, to serve out the remainder of his sentence in his native Yemen.

Tried before a military commission at Guantanamo Bay in August, Hamdan was sentenced to 51/2 years, but with time served, had only four months to go.
