RIYADH (AP) — Fifty-five Saudi Arabians who were released recently from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba will receive about US$2,600 each to celebrate the upcoming Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr [which is part of Ramadan], a Saudi newspaper reported.
Saudi Interior Minister Prince Naif bin Abdulaziz has granted the ex-Guantanamo prisoners temporarily release from detention centers in Saudi Arabia to spend time with their families during the holiday later this month, the Okaz newspaper reported.
… U.S. authorities transferred 16 Saudis from Guantanamo Bay back to Saudi Arabia in September, the latest transfer of prisoners from the U.S. detention facility. Fewer than 40 Saudi detainees remain in detention.
