Guantanamo Prisoners Were Starved

A new report by Andy Worthington reviewing Pentagon documents released in 2007 reveals:

Throughout Guantánamo’s history, one in ten of the total population — 80 prisoners in total — weighed, at some point, less than 112 pounds (eight stone, or 50 kg), and 20 of these prisoners weighed less than 98 pounds (seven stone, or 44 kg).

Note: At least some of these weights may reflect prisoners on hunger strikes.
