Guantanamo prisoners may be allowed to live here

IRELAND may take in prisoners from Guantanamo Bay if it gets EU backing for the move, Justice Minister Dermot Ahern said yesterday.

New US President Barack Obama, who has previously called for the Cuban detention camp to be shut down, yesterday ordered military trials to be stopped.

Mr Ahern said the Government may be willing to resettle some of the remaining 245 Guantanamo detainees in Ireland.
