US sends five Guantanamo inmates to Georgia, Slovakia

The United States has transferred five Guantanamo Bay prisoners to Europe as part of efforts to empty and close the controversial US military detention center in Cuba, officials said Thursday. Three Yemeni prisoners were sent to Georgia, while a fourth Yemeni and a Tunisian were transferred to Slovakia, Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Myles Caggins said. They arrived by plane around 1900 GMT, leaving behind 143 terror suspects at Guantanamo. The five men — among them the very first Yemenis to be transferred to Guantanamo in 2010 — had been cleared for release by President Barack Obama’s administration.
