US-POLITICS-GUANTANAMO

People walk by as activists participate in a mock force feeding while protesting outside the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington, DC July 30, 2013. Activists gathered to protest the use of force feeding prisoners who are held in Guantanamo by the US government. President Barack Obama vowed to close the facility when he first took office in 2009, but four years on the military prison set up in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks still holds 166 men. The vast majority of those held at Guantanamo, detained on Afghan battlefields or handed over by other countries, have never been charged or tried, and dozens have been taking part in a hunger strike in recent months. Seventy detainees were taking part in the hunger strike as of July 23, with 46 of them listed as being fed through nasal tubes, according to the military. More than half of the detainees at Guantanamo have been cleared for release and face no charges in the United States.
