Uruguay: No more Guantanamo inmates

Abu Wael Dhiab, one of the Syrian refugees - Buenos Aires, Feb 2015

Abu Wael Dhiab went to Argentina in February to campaign for the release of all Guantanamo detainees

The new Uruguayan government says it will no longer grant asylum to prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay detention centre.

In December, Uruguay gave sanctuary to six Arab men who had been held at the US base in Cuba for 12 years.

Opinion polls said most Uruguayans rejected the decision taken by outgoing President Jose Mujica.

Foreign Minister Rodolfo Nin Novoa also said Uruguay would stop taking refugees from the Syrian conflict.
