Londoner Aaron Yoon returns to Canada after being released from North African prison

28 Jul

London native Aaron Yoon is reportedly back in Canada, after spending 18 months in a north African prison on terrorism-related charges.

As of late Friday night, however, Yoon still hadn?t been publicly seen in London.

Yoon, 24, deported from Mauritania, landed at Toronto?s Pearson International Airport Friday afternoon, media reports said.

The RCMP confirmed to news outlets Yoon had returned to Canada, after a flight from Paris. He was apparently seen being escorted by Mounties off the flight in Toronto.

It was unclear whether Yoon was detained or was free to go home.

He wasn?t seen getting off afternoon or night flights to London from Toronto.

Reporters were camped outside his family?s south-end home into the night.

Mounties had said they would return Free Press calls, but hadn?t done so.

The former South Collegiate Institute student was arrested in his hotel in Mauritania?s capital, Nouakchott, in December 2011.

He was sentenced to two years on terrorism-related charges.

Yoon had maintained he travelled to Mauritania to study Arabic and Islam in May 2011.

Two schoolmates and travel companions, Ali Medlej and Xristos Katsiroubas, were killed in an al-Qaida-linked terrorist attack on an Algerian gas plant in January that killed 39 hostages.
