Dozens still awaiting transfer as Guantanamo Bay hunger strike continues

  • 56 Yemeni nationals are still incarcerated at Guantanamo Bay after being cleared for transfer back home, thanks to a suspension of transfer to Yemen following the failed 2009 Christmas Day bombing of Northwest Airlines Flight 253.
  • 86 detainees currently await transfer out of Guantanamo Bay in total, leaving just 80 detainees which the government believes deserve to remain incarcerated in the facility. The U.S. military blames the back-up on congressional bickering, though WashPo notes the department responsible for organizing transfers has been noticeably declining in quality for more than a year.
  • 100 prisoners at Guantanamo Bay have been taking part in a hunger strike which began in February, protesting the continued detention of dozens of those cleared for transfer as well as alleged mistreatment by guards and other prison personnel. 23 are now being force-fed, with doctors prescribing “enteral feeds” for any inmate that drops below 85 percent of their healthy body weight.  source
