A U.S. military appeals court has overturned the conviction of an Australian man who was held in Guantanamo Bay and found guilty years ago of material support for a terrorist organization. David Hicks has told a news conference in Sydney that he did not intend to seek an official apology or compensation for his five-and-a-half year ordeal in the U.S. prison camp in Cuba.

David Hicks was the first person to be convicted at a U.S. war crimes trial since the World War II.
