A US military tribunal on Wednesday sentenced Osama bin Laden's former cook and sometime driver to 14 years in prison.

But the Sudanese captive, Ibrahim al Qosi, could serve far less time because his sentence is sharply limited in a plea agreement that remains secret.

Qosi pleaded guilty last month in the war crimes court at the Guantanamo Bay US naval base to charges of conspiring with al Qaeda and providing material support for terrorism.
