A Canadian man who admitted to going to al-Qaeda training camps has been released from a U.S. prison in advance of his deportation back to Canada.

Mohammed Abdullah Warsame, 37, was released Friday from a prison in Terre Haute, Ind., state prison officials told CBC News on Friday.

He was sent to the prison after he pleaded guilty in May 2009 to conspiracy to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization. He was given a sentence of seven years and eight months, but he received credit for good behaviour and time served. He had been in custody since December 2003.
