Five Guantanamo Detainees Sent To United Arab Emirates
The prisoners were from Yemen, as are most who are cleared for transfer, but the U.S. has to ask third-party countries to take them in.By Kate Grumke | November 15, 2015
On Sunday, the Pentagon announced it had transferred five Guantanamo detainees to the United Arab Emirates.
The detainees were lower level inmates from Yemen, which is the country most Guantanamo inmates who are recommended for transfer are from.
The U.S. hasn't sent a prisoner cleared for transfer to Yemen since 2010, and it doesn't look like that will change any time soon, as the country continues to see unrest.
