Guantanamo prisoners cleared to leave still in detention


Dozens of prisoners at the US military prison in Guantanamo Bay have been held for more than a decade without charge and have waited years for a final signature to gain freedom.

Since 2009, 79 of the 149 prisoners in Guantanamo have been approved for release after being assessed as posing no security risk to the US. Despite the approval, only one prisoner has been released so far.

Most of them were told that they would face no charges and are now eligible to be either sent home or to a third host nation. Yet they are still waiting.
