Prisoners on hunger strike in Guantanamo Bay are being shackled to their beds 24 hours a day and force fed by the US army, according to Amnesty International and lawyers representing the detainees.
Some 210 Guantanamo detainees, around 40 percent of the camp, have been on hunger strike for over 60 days in protest at the US’s refusal to abide by the Geneva Conventions on rights for prisoners. Around 20 of them are being force fed.
Among them is British resident Omar Deghayes.
