EU slams US failure to close Guantanamo as 'shame'

The EU's home affairs commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem yesterday slammed Washington's failure to close the Guantanamo Bay detention centre as "a shame".
"We are very displeased, this is the opinion of the European Union and of the whole of Europe," she said. "It is a shame that it is still open and that people have not been put on trial," she added.
