Another detainee dies at Guantánamo

in

A Yemeni man died on 8 September in his 11th year of detention at Guantánamo. He had been held without charge or trial.

This is the ninth known death of a detainee at Guantánamo since 2002 when the states first turned it into a holding place for 'suspected terrorists'. According to US military authorities, six of the previous eight deaths were the result of suicide and two from natural causes.
