The lawyer for the widow of an American soldier killed in Afghanistan has filed an application so that any money paid by the Canadian government to a former Guantanamo Bay prisoner convicted of killing him will go toward the widow and another U.S. soldier injured.
Lawyer Don Winder made the comments as a decision by the Canadian government to apologize and give $10.5 million to Omar Khadr came under mounting criticism.
