Supporters of Shaker Aamer—the last Londoner in the Guantanamo Bay prison camp—held a vigil outside the MI6 building in central London on Monday of this week.

Shaker has been in Guantanamo for 11 years, despite having been cleared for release several times.

He says he was tortured in the presence of MI6 agents in 2002. He is currently on hunger strike.
