Two Guantanamo detainees transferred to Ghana: Pentagon

Two Guantanamo Bay detainees have been transferred from the US military prison to Ghana, the Pentagon said Wednesday, bringing the controversial facility’s remaining population down to 105. Mahmud Umar Muhammad Bin Atef and Khalid Muhammad Salih al-Dhuby, both from Yemen, are the first detainees to be sent anywhere in sub-Saharan Africa, Pentagon spokesman Commander Gary Ross told AFP. The duo will be monitored and the Pentagon is confident they do not pose a threat, Ross said.
