Spain has received the third of a total of five prisoners it has accepted from the US detention facility in
Guantanamo, Cuba, the Interior Ministry said Thursday, DPA reported.
The Afghan man arrived in Madrid on Wednesday. He followed a Palestinian, who came in February, and a Yemeni, who arrived in May.
There were no terrorism-related charges or arrest warrants against the Afghan man, who would receive residence and work permits, the ministry said.
It described his arrival as fitting in with the anti-terrorist policy of the European Union and the United States.
Washington has previously thanked Spain for its support for US President
Barack Obama in closing the Guantanamo prison camp.
