Inside Guantanamo Prison - 01 Aug 2013
Images from the archive relating to the prison used to house detainees at Guantanamo Bay U.S. Naval Base in Cuba. Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri slammed U.S. treatment of hunger striking inmates at Guantanamo Bay and said the group would spare no effort to free them, according to an audio recording posted on the Internet on Wednesday.

He did not elaborate on what al Qaeda intended to do, but militants have in the past kidnapped Westerners and sought to trade them for jailed comrades.

Some 166 men, most of whom were rounded up in counter-terrorism operations since the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, are currently being held at the military base. Many have been on hunger strike to protest their indefinite detention, with some being force-fed.

The shield is to protect the guards from human waste which is thrown at them by the detainees. Camp Five, modelled after a U.S. maximum security facility, houses the most uncooperative detainees, along with those of high intelligence value. REUTERS/Mandel Ngan/Pool (CUBA)

Portraits of Yemeni inmates at Guantanamo Bay are held up by relatives during a protest to demand their release, outside the U.S. embassy in Sanaa April 1, 2013. The detention camp at the Guantanamo Bay U.S. Naval Base in eastern Cuba holds 166 men captured in counterterrorism operations. Nearly all have been held for 11 years without charge. The Barack Obama administration has cleared more than half the Guantanamo prisoners for release or transfer, but the U.S. Congress has blocked efforts to close the detention camp and made it increasingly difficult to resettle Guantanamo prisoners. Many are Yemenis whom the U.S. will not repatriate at this time because of instability in that country. REUTERS/Khaled Abdullah (YEMEN - Tags: POLITICS CRIME LAW)

Australian al Qaeda suspect David Hicks sat stoically before a U.S. military tribunal that formally charged him with war crimes on Wednesday and showed no emotion as his lawyers questioned the panel's ability to try him fairly. Hicks, a 29-year-old convert to Islam, is among the first four suspected al Qaeda fighters held at the remote U.S. naval base to face criminal charges of plotting attacks against America and its allies. The four are appearing before a military tribunal this week for pretrial hearings. REUTERS/Mark Wilson/POOL mw/jf/HB
