Former terrorists held at the U.S. prison in Guantanamo, Cuba were detected by U.S. intelligence agencies recently working with Islamist rebels in Syria, according to U.S. officials.
The al Qaeda-linked terrorists in Syria are part of a group called the Al Nusrah Front that is fighting alongside the Free Syrian Army (FSA), the rebels opposing the Bashar al-Assad regime in the civil war.
The number and names of the former Guantanamo inmates were not disclosed.
A Pentagon spokesman declined to comment, citing a policy of not discussing intelligence matters on Syria.
