Guantanamo prisoners’ hunger strike

Day 92 of Guantanamo prisoners’ hunger strike: Prisoners at the notorious U.S. prison are perishing as they refuse to eat food in protest at their abject conditions. Lawyers say as many as 130 of the 166 detainees are on hunger strike. Some are being force-fed which rights groups say amounts to torture. The prison has become a symbol of human rights violation by the U.S. But Guantanamo is not an isolated case. The same violations have taken place in other U.S. prisons like Abu Ghraib in Iraq, Bagram in Afghanistan and the secret prisons it has in many countries around the world for its rendition program.
