"Three Guantánamo Detainees Committed Suicide, Military Says"
The New York Times is reporting that two Saudis and one Yemeni have committed suicide at the US 'terrorist' detention centre in Cuba. I put the word terrorist in quotes because none of those detained there have ever been charged with anything, far less convicted - their detention, if it ever had any justification, has long since passed the stage where it might be considered legal. They are the first reported deaths there.
