Yemeni Dead at Guantanamo

The U.S. military says a Yemeni detainee has died in an apparent suicide at the Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba.

U.S. Southern Command said in a statement Tuesday that the detainee was 31-year-old Muhammad Ahmad Abdallah Salih, also known as Al Hanashi.

The military said guards conducting routine checks found Salih unresponsive and not breathing Monday. Officials say a physician later pronounced him dead "after extensive life-saving measures had been exhausted."
