The United States announced Sunday the transfer of five detainees from Guantanamo Bay to the United Arab Emirates, part of a plan to close the controversial military prison.
The move means that 107 detainees remain at Guantanamo Bay, the Pentagon said in a statement, adding that it was "grateful to the government of the United Arab Emirates for its willingness to support ongoing US efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility."
