Maybe 9?

I have not seen an official announcement but the general concensus is that nine Yemeni were transferred to Saudi Arabia. One of the nine is the long term hunger striker Tariq Ba Odah. I understand that his health is pretty dire.

With those nine gone here are the latest stats:

The prison population now stands at 80: 26 are cleared, 44 are awaiting clearance, and 10 are in the military commission system (of those, 7 are in “active” “trial” proceedings while 3 have been “convicted”).

Of the 26 cleared, 21 (80.8%) are Yemenis and 5 are non-Yemenis. 

Of the 44 awaiting clearance, 19 are Yemenis and 25 are non-Yemenis.

H/O to fellow gitmo attorney Brian Foster for keeping track of all of this.
