MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay – The wedding of a second former Guantanamo Bay detainee to a woman in Uruguay has been postponed one week.
Irina Posadas, an Uruguayan woman who converted to Islam, said her wedding to 34-year-old Syrian Omar Abdelhadi Faraj, scheduled for Saturday, would be postponed one week.
Posadas said the wedding was postponed because harassment by the media hasn't allowed the couple any space.
The announcement came a day after Adel bin Muhammad El Ouerghi, 50, married 24-year-old Roma Blanco, who is also a convert to Islam.
The two men and four other ex-detainees were resettled in Uruguay in December after spending nearly 13 years in Guantanamo. All were detained in Afghanistan in 2002 with alleged ties to al-Qaida. The men were never tried and the U.S. government decided to release them.
