Inside Guantanamo Bay – the story in photos

by | 30th, January 2013

GUANTANAMO Bay is a US prison squatting on a low bluff looking out over the Atlantic Ocean in Cuba. The cell blocks that might hold actual Al Qaeda terrorists are made from 40ft steel shipping containers – five cells to a container, eight containers to a cell block.  One side of each container is replaced by wire. Each cell is about 7ft by 8ft. The beds are metal bunks.  The toilet is in the squatting style. At night, the place is drenched in a white light. Inmates are subject to “enhanced interrogation techniques” or “aggressive questioning”. Around the camp, life goes on. There’s a school and recreation rooms for the site’s workers, support staff and their children. It’s not America. Gitmo is another world:
