Blair: Guantanamo Must Be Stopped
The U.S. detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, is an "anomaly that has to be dealt with," British Prime Minister Tony Blair said Tuesday.
The Geneva Conventions must be applied to detainees at the camp, Blair stressed. He did not have an up-to-date report that indicated whether that was the case at present, he added.
Giving evidence to senior British parliamentarians, the prime minister said that detention at the camp "has got to be brought to an end."
"This is an anomaly that has to be dealt with," he said.
