 Newscast Media -- The Pentagon announced that two inmates from Guantanamo Bay have been repatriated to Africa, but human rights groups are afraid that the rights of the inmates will be violated. Abdul Aziz Naji has been shipped to Algeria while Abd-al-Nisr Mohammed Khantumani, of Syria, has been transferred to the island of Cape Verde, West Africa.

Naji had been held at Guantanamo since 2002 on alleged terrorism charges by the US government who say that at the time of his capture, he belonged to the Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group in Pakistan.

The New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights said, "We are deeply concerned that he (Naji) will disappear into secret detention and face the threat of persecution by terrorist groups in Algeria."

Barack Obama vowed to shut the prison down within a year if he were elected president, but has been unable to fulfill that promise.  Guantanamo still hosts 178 inmates.                                  Add Comments>>
