#AceWorldNews – CUBA:Dec.31 – Two Tunisian and three Yemeni detainees were transferred from the US-run prison at Guantanamo Bay to Kazakhstan, AFP reported, citing a Pentagon statement.
The move is part of President Barack Obama’s effort to close the controversial military jail.
It was set up to detain terror suspects after the September 11, 2001 attacks.
The transfer of the five detainees leaves 127 inmates still held at the prison, located at a US naval base in south-east Cuba.
