Sana'a: A rehabilitation centre for Guantanamo returnees will be
established in Yemen with American support, official sources said.
The centre will aim to receive the Yemeni returnees and work to
reintegrate them back into society.
Around 100 Yemenis are still languishing in the American detention
centre in Cuba, with Yemenis representing the largest number of
some 270 various nationals who remain there.
"Yemen will be responsible for qualifying and rehabilitating the
returnees thoughtfully, culturally, psychologically, whereas the
American government will be funding the establishment and
outfits of the centre," the state-run 26 September newspaper
quoted an unidentified official as saying.
The official did not however say when the 100 Yemenis
will be released from Guantanamo.
