WASHINGTON: Six Yemenis held for more than a decade at the US military prison at Guantanamo have been flown to Oman for resettlement, the Pentagon said on Saturday, the latest step in President Barack Obama's slow push to close the facility.
The release came a week after defense secretary Ash Carter said he was working with the White House on a proposal for Congress on shutting the internationally condemned jail at the US naval base in Cuba, where most prisoners have been held without charges or trial.
