The US Defense Department announced Monday the transfer of two Guantanamo detainees to Saudi Arabia, bringing the total number of inmates remaining at the US prison in Cuba to 160.

After a “comprehensive review” of their cases, Saad Muhammad Husayn Qahtani and Hamood Abdulla Hamood were “designated for transfer by consensus of the six departments and agencies comprising the task force.”
