The United States released five more prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay detention camp Wednesday night.
The State Department arranged the secret transfer of four detainees to the Arab country of Oman while one was sent to Estonia.
The five men — all from Yemen — were captured in Pakistan with suspected ties to al-Qaida in either 2001 or 2002. They were held captive at Guantanamo for more than 12 years.
