USA: Uighurs cleared of terrorism to remain at Guantánamo detention centre

A federal judge declared in December 2005 that the indefinite detention at Guantánamo Bay detention centre of two Chinese Muslims, determined not to be enemy combatants, was unlawful but that he could not order they be released in the US.
