A top al-Qaeda figure suspected of having close ties to Osama Bin Laden has been taken to the US-run Guantanamo Bay detention camp, the Pentagon says.
The man, named as Muhammad Rahim, helped arrange Bin Laden's escape from his Tora Bora hideout in Afghanistan in 2001, US officials say.
He was transferred to the Pentagon from CIA custody earlier this week, a Pentagon spokesman said.
The CIA captured Rahim, said to be an Afghan national, in the summer of 2007.
