|CIA terror deportee gets Sweden residency|
Acting Migration Board General Director Mikael Ribbenvik says the decision to grant Ahmed Agiza residency was made Wednesday.
Agiza and fellow Egyptian Muhammed Alzery were handed over to U.S. agents at Bromma Airport in Stockholm and taken to Egypt in 2001. Their capture was part of a much-criticized program during the Bush administration, which flew alleged to countries that allowed harsh interrogation techniques.
Alzery was released in 2003 while Agiza was freed last year. Agiza is currently in Egypt and has been informed of the decision.
