USA: Another detainee dies at Guantánamo
A tragic reminder of the numbing cruelty of the USA’s indefinite detention regime at its Guantánamo Bay detention facility, and the urgent need to resolve the detentions, comes with the news that a Yemeni man was found dead in his cell on 8 September 2012. This is the ninth known death of a detainee since January 2002. Amnesty International continues to call on the USA to bring the detainees still held in Guantánamo to fair trial in independent courts, or to release them.
