Obama lifts freeze on Guantanamo trials

Tuesday March 8 2011

WASHINGTON

President Barack Obama lifted a ban yesterday on new military trials for Guantanamo Bay terror suspects, apparently conceding that the camp he has vowed to close will not be emptied any time soon.

Obama also issued new guidelines to ensure humane and lawful treatment of suspects deemed too dangerous to release, but officials insisted he was still determined to shutter the controversial “war on terror” facility in Cuba. (AFP)
