U.S. Sends Two Guantanamo Detainees To Latvia and Spain

Posted by Info on 23/07/2010

“The United States coordinated with the governments of Spain and Latvia to ensure the transfers took place under appropriate security measures and will remain in close consultation with both governments regarding these individuals,” the Pentagon said.
The identities of the two detainees were “withheld for privacy reasons at the request of the receiving governments.”

The transfers announced on Thursday brought the number of remaining detainees at Guantanamo to 176, down from 245 when U.S. President Barack Obama took office last year.
