More than half of Guantánamo's detainees are Yemeni held without a trail

"(Today) marks the 12th anniversary of the arrival of the first men to be detained at Guantánamo. Today, 155 men are still detained at the prison. Many of these men have been cleared for years but remain imprisoned, trapped by politics. More than half of the men are Yemeni, and despite the president lifting his self-imposed ban on transfers to Yemen last spring, not one has been sent home since 2010."
