US government releases names of 55 Guantanamo detainees approved for transfer to other nations

From The Washington Post:

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The U.S. Justice Department on Friday made public the names of 55 Guantanamo prisoners who have been approved for transfer to the custody of other countries, releasing information sought by human rights organizations.

The announcement, which reverses a 2009 decision, was a surprise to organizations that had filed FOIA requests seeking the information.
