Hunger strike in U.S. concentration camp

BBC – EIGHTY-FOUR of the 166 prisoners held at the U.S. detention centre in the illegally-occupied Guantánamo Naval Base are now on hunger strike, U.S. military officials admit. “The prisoners are protesting against their indefinite detention. Most are being held without charge. Sixteen of the 84 prisoners are being force-fed and five are being treated in hospital. None has a life-threatening condition, according to the military. The hunger strike started in February and has grown rapidly in recent weeks. The number of strikers last Wednesday was 52 and by Friday had reached 63.”
