US Sends 15 Guantanamo Bay Detainees To UAE, Largest Under Obama
United States says it has sent 15 Guantanamo Bay detainees to the United Arab Emirates which is the largest single transfer done under President Barack Obama’s administration.
The Pentagon says the transfer of 12 Yemeni nationals and three Afghans brings the total number of prisoners down to 61 at the US facility in Cuba.
Reports say most of the inmates have been held without charge or trial for more than a decade.
This comes as President Obama is said wants to close the prison before he leaves office.
