Bermuda Takes Guantanamo Uighurs; Chinese Government Protests
Four Chinese Muslim Uighurs have been released from the US detention centre at Guantanamo and resettled in Bermuda, US officials said.
The four men are part of a group of Chinese nationals captured by the US in Afghanistan but found not to be enemy combatants four years ago.
[…]Beijing has described 22 Uighurs detained by the US as terrorists and demanded their return to China.
Soon after the four former inmates landed in Bermuda, a British overseas territory off America’s eastern seaboard, US justice department spokesman Dean Boyd said: “We will consult regularly with the government of Bermuda on the status of these individuals.”
