Three Detainees Commit Suicide at US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

Human rights activists said yesterday's announcement that three detainees at the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, had committed suicide shows the need for the Bush administration to provide court trials for prisoners or release them.
Amnesty International said the suicides ``are the tragic results of years of arbitrary and indefinite detention," and called the prison ``an indictment" of the administration's human rights record.
