UK Guantanamo four to be released

London, December 8, 2007

Four of the five British residents held by the US at Guantanamo Bay are to be released, the BBC said.

The British Government requested the release of all five men in August after previously refusing to intervene as they were not British citizens.

Jamil el-Banna, Omar Deghayes and Abdenour Samuer will come back to the UK, while Shaker Abdur-Raheem Aamer will return to his native Saudi Arabia.

Campaign group Amnesty International said the news was "extremely welcome".
