Oman receives 10 prisoners from Guantanamo
The nationality of the prisoners not disclosed as they would reside in the country on a temporary basis
Oman on Monday received 10 inmates from the US military detention center at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, the sultanate’s foreign ministry said on Monday.
It did not disclose the nationality of the prisoners who would reside in the country on a temporary basis, in a move that comes in the closing days of US President Barack Obama’s tenure.
The latest transfers would leave the number of Guantanamo detainees at 45, based on figures the Pentagon issued on January 6.
