EDMONTON — Omar Khadr is back in an Edmonton court today to find out if more of his bail conditions will be eased.

The former Guantanamo Bay prisoner has asked to be able to visit his family in Toronto and to get rid of his electronic monitoring bracelet.

Justice June Ross reserved her decision on those requests after last week agreeing to allow him to attend early-morning prayers and night classes for his studies to become an emergency medical technician.

Khadr is currently on bail pending an appeal in the United States of his conviction for war crimes, including the murder of an American soldier.

Bail conditions included that he only communicate with his family in English and under supervision and that he live with his Edmonton lawyer, Dennis Edney.

Khadr was 15 when he was captured following a firefight in Afghanistan in 2002, and became the youngest prisoner at the time to be held in Guantanamo.
