US frees 26 more from terror camp

The United States last night said it had freed another 26 prisoners held at the US naval base in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, in one of the largest single releases yet undertaken. A US defence spokesman said the men, 23 from Afghanistan and three from Pakistan, had been flown out of the base over the weekend. The Pentagon did not say why they had been released. They had been held without charge or legal representation. “We make a determination about the detention and release of a detainee based on the best information and evidence we have at the time,” the Pentagon said in a statement.

Another 12 have transferred for continued detention in their own countries, including seven Russians. Full Story
