Hunger-strikers petition to stop force-feeding

The U.S. government has until noon on Wednesday to respond to a request to block the force-feeding of hunger strikers at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba. Lawyers for the prisoner argue it violates human rights. The U.S. military holds 166 foreign captives at the detention camp on the Guantanamo Bay U.S. Naval Base in Cuba, and a spokesman said 106 had joined a months-long hunger strike to protest the failure to resolve their fate after more than a decade of detention.
