Gitmo Detainee Died in Apparent Suicide

A Guantanamo detainee was found dead in his cell yesterday in an apparent suicide.

The death highlights claims by detainee lawyers that the psychological condition of their clients is deteriorating, according to the New York Times.

“It was simply a matter of time before this suicide,” Joshua Colangelo-Bryan, one of the detainee lawyers, told the newspaper. “And I imagine it is only a matter of time before the next.”
