Captured American Taliban arrives in US: Report

United States national John Walker Lindh accused of fighting for the Taliban in Afghanistan against coalition forces arrived in the US, reports said on Thursday.

According to reports a plane carrying Walker landed at Dulles International Airport outside of Washington.

A report quoted US attorney Paul McNulty as saying that Walker would be charged with conspiracy to kill US nationals and for supporting terrorist activities.

"He will now get the justice he deserves," White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said.

Walker was captured in northern Afghanistan in November and then survived a bloody uprising by Taliban and Al Qaeda prisoners at a fort near Mazar-i-Sharif before coming to the attention of US authorities.

He faces life in prison if convicted on the conspiracy charge.

As a US citizen, he is not under the jurisdiction of military tribunals planned by President George W Bush to try suspected terrorists.
