More prisoners end hunger strike at Guantanamo: US

The US military says the number of prisoners on the hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay has dropped to 75, down from a peak of 106 last week.



Kingston (Jamaica): The US military says the number of prisoners on the hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay has dropped to 75, down from a peak of 106 last week.

From the US base in Cuba, Army Lt Col Sam House said on Thursday that a total of 67 of those 75 prisoners on hunger strike ate a meal over the last day.

House says they were still listed as hunger strikers because the military requires a minimum of three days of sustained eating and a minimal caloric intake before they can be removed from the tally. He says they also "must want to be removed from the list".
A total of 46 prisoners are on the "enteral feed list", meaning they can be strapped down and fed through a nasal tube.
