DOHA, Qatar — Five Taliban leaders freed from Guantanamo Bay under a prisoner swap deal with the United States said Friday in their first statement since arriving in Qatar that they would remain “loyal” to the conditions Qatar has set for their release.
But the statement gave no information on what those conditions were or whether there are any limitations on their freedom of movement inside Qatar. U.S. officials have said they include a one-year ban on their travel from Qatar.
