Amnesty International applauds Uruguay's Decision to Resettle Six Guantánamo detainees

Amnesty International applauds the decision by the government of Uruguay to resettle six Guantánamo detainees. While Amnesty International considers that the USA has the primary responsibility to end the Guantánamo detentions, the organization is also calling on other governments to offer humanitarian protection to such individuals in order to help end their ordeal and to facilitate the closure of the detention center at Guantánamo Bay.
