Photos offer new view of Guantanamo detainees

A collection of Red Cross photos gives a rare glimpse inside the Guantanamo Bay prison camps that President Barack Obama wants to close.

Only the closed files of the International Committee of the Red Cross, which took the photos, and U.S. Defense agencies have more.
