The camp, opened in 2002 under the Bush administration to hold suspects in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States in 2001, has been a focus of international criticism for denying detainees legal rights.
The Obama administration is still considering what to do with the 239 remaining captives held at Guantanamo, who include nearly 100 Yemenis. …
The military identified the dead man as 31-year-old Muhammad Ahmad Abdallah Salih, also known as Al Hanashi, but did not say specifically how he died. …
