Four Uighurs released from Guantánamo

"Today you have let freedom ring," said Abdul Nasser, one of the four Chinese Uighurs who was released from Guantánamo earlier this morning. They are resettling in Bermuda. It is expected that the remaining 14 Uighurs will be released to the Pacific island nation of Palau.

In their press release, Radio Free Asia used this photo of Witness Against Torture activists from the 100 Days Campaign in D.C. For the article, click here. Release into an established Uighur community in the U.S. or Germany would have made more sense, but this is still very good news!
