Democracy Now: Gitmo Prisoner Dies in Cell


The U.S. military has disclosed a Guantánamo Bay prisoner died over the weekend in his cell. The victim’s identity has not been released, but he is said to have taken part in a hunger strike at the prison earlier this year. He is believed to be the ninth foreign prisoner to die at Guantánamo since the United States began jailing foreigners there in 2002. Several prisoners have taken their own lives.
