U.S. officials meeting with Uighur detainees in Guantanamo

A team of lawyers from the Justice Department, the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees U.S. immigration enforcement, and the Department of State is in Guantanamo to meet with 17 Uighurs imprisoned at the detention center for suspected terrorists. Last fall, a federal judge in Washington, saying there was no evidence they were terrorists, ordered them released and granted asylum in the United States.
