WASHINGTON (CNN) — All detainees under U.S. military custody at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, will now be granted the privileges of the Geneva Convention, sources told CNN Tuesday.
This is the first time the detainees — including those suspected of being members of al Qaeda — will have the full protection of the international conventions on holding prisoners of war.
The new guidelines are to be released in a memo from the Pentagon, the sources said.
