USA: Guantánamo: Conditions getting worse (Web Feature)

, Index number: AMR 51/063/2007

A new facility at Guantánamo Bay is creating even harsher conditions of extreme isolation and sensory deprivation for detainees. Detainees at Camp 6 are confined for 22 hours a day to individual, steel cells with no natural light and minimal human contact. No activities are provided, with detainees subjected to 24-hour lighting and constant observation by guards. AI is calling for Guantánamo to be closed and for detainees to be brought to fair trial, or else released.
