Senegal Agrees To Take Two Guantanamo Bay Prisoners

Senegal has agreed to grant asylum to two Libyans detained in Guantanamo Bay on humanitarian grounds and in line with Senegalese hospitality and Islamic solidarity.

A statement from the Foreign Ministry says the two had been detained without charge for 14 years.

The decision follows the “historic decision” by the US government to close down the controversial detention centre.

US President Barack Obama first promised to close the facility seven years ago.
