Libyan guantanamo detainees in Abu Saleem prison.
Summary: Post visited two returned Guantanamo detainees to confirm their
welfare and whereabouts, and the legal basis on which they are
being detained in Libya. Muhammad Mansur al-Rimi (ISN: 194) and Ben
Qumu Hamouda (ISN: 557), say they have not been mistreated.
The Abu Salim prison, where they are held, is a place at which
terrorists, extremists and other individuals deemed to be
particularly dangerous to state security are detained.
Exempts: Al-Rimi says he remains in solitary detention in a 15 by 15 foot
cell, but he is able to walk outside regularly, is
allowed to speak to other detainees and has access to medication.
He stated he was visited 3 times by family since his return in Libya.

both were better.
He repeated his earlier claim (ref A) that he sustained the
injury to his arm in 2004 or 2005 during a scuffle with U.S.
soldiers who entered his cell to punish him for allegedly
instigating a disturbance among several other prisoners.
