5 Chinese Muslims at Guantanamo seek better deal
Washington: The Obama administration is
seeking to block further court review in the case of five
Chinese Muslims held at Guantanamo Bay who want to come to the
United States to live.
Before three federal appeals judges, a lawyer for the
five Chinese citizens said today that his clients did not want
to be resettled on the Pacific Ocean island of Palau and that
they have a right to have their views taken into account by US
The government says it is trying to find a country that
will accept the five, who fear their lives will be endangered
if they are returned to China. The Obama administration has
declared that the five pose no threat to the United States and
should no longer be held as enemy combatants.
