Canada's Supreme Court has rejected the federal government's effort to have former Guantanamo Bay prisoner Omar Khadr declared an adult offender.

The Toronto-born Khadr, released on bail in Canada last week, spent 10 years in the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Since 2012 he had been held in Canada, serving out an eight-year sentence handed down by a U.S. military commission in 2010.
