Manama- Three Bahraini men returned home Saturday after being released from the U.S. Navy detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, a lawmaker said.

&#34The three have arrived and they are at their houses,&#34 said Adel al-Moawdah, the deputy speaker of Bahrain”s parliament who has been pushing for their release.

Salman Ibrahim Al Khalifa, Abdullah Al-Noaimi and Adil Kamil Abdullah Al Haji returned Friday aboard a chartered jet from Guantanamo.

The three were arrested four years ago by Pakistani authorities and handed over to U.S. forces during the 2001 war in Afghanistan.

Al-Moawdah told The Associated Press the men were interviewed early Saturday by prosecution officials before being sent home.

&#34I don”t think they will be charged with anything,&#34 he said. &#34There is nothing to charge them with.&#34
