SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Prosecutors have filed war-crimes charges against two Guantanamo detainees, accusing them of training al-Qaeda recruits in Afghanistan, a spokesman for the Office of Military Commissions said.

The spokesman, Joseph DellaVedova, said the maximum sentence both men could receive is life in prison.

He identified the two men as Noor Uthman Muhammed of Sudan, who was allegedly a weapons instructor, and Tariq Mahmoud Ahmed al-Sawah, an alleged explosives trainer.
