Uruguay agrees to take Guantanamo detainees

Uruguayan President Jose Mujica delivers a speech in Santiago, on March 12, 2014Uruguay’s President Jose Mujica said Thursday that his country had agreed to receive detainees from the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, calling the decision a matter of human rights. US President Barack Obama is struggling to fulfill his five-year-old promise to close the controversial jail, and countries have been slow to come forward and agree to accept transferred inmates. Uruguay would be the first country in South America to do so. It was “a question of human rights,” Mujica later told reporters, without confirming the number of prisoners to be accepted or revealing their nationalities.
