A detainee wearing restraints is seen inside Camp VI at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on March 30, 2010The Chilean government is considering taking in detainees from the US detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, officials said Monday. The United States made the request back in 2010 but the idea has run up against opposition from some lawmakers, said Foreign Ministry legal adviser Claudio Troncoso.
