Guantanamo Bay detainee dies, the 9th fatality at the prison
Carol J. WilliamsA foreign terrorism suspect with a record of disciplinary infractions has died at the Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba, the ninth fatality since the prison opened more than a decade ago, the Pentagon announced Monday.
The name, nationality and age of the detainee were withheld pending notification of his family and home country, according to a statement issued by Joint Task Force Guantanamo. An autopsy was planned and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service was investigating the circumstances of the man's death, the statement said.
Guards walking routine patrols of the Camp V maximum-security cellblocks Saturday found the prisoner unresponsive and transferred him to the Navy base hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the military said.
