U.S. Transfers Three Guantanamo Prisoners to Italy and Serbia

Washington, July 13 (RHC)-- Seventy-six prisoners remain in the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, after the U.S. transferred three prisoners in the past 48 hours.  The prison is located on the U.S. Naval Base in eastern Cuba, illegally-occupied against the will of the Cuban government and people.

According to reports, Yemeni citizen Fayiz Ahmad Yahia Suleiman is being sent to Italy after being approved for transfer nearly six years ago.  Yemeni national Mansur Ahmad Saad al-Dayfi and Tajik national Muhammadi Davlatov were both sent to Serbia. 

Twenty-seven more prisoners remaining at Guantanamo have already been approved for release. President Barack Obama promised to close the prison at the beginning of his first term in office nearly eight years ago.
