Guantanamo suicides

Rabiya Parekh | 14:46 UK time, Monday, 12 June 2006

As Kevin mentioned in his earlier post we will be looking at the reaction from around the world to the three suicides of Guantanamo Bay inmates at the weekend.

We had a lengthy discussion in this mornings meeting about what question we wanted to put out. A debate about whether Guantanamo Bay should be shut down has been had many times on the programme and we were looking for something that would go beyond this conversation.

You may have heard Colleen Graffy described the suicides as a good PR move to draw attention to the inmates.

So today we're asking if attitudes have hardened towards America because of the stories coming out of treatment of detainess in Guantanamo Bay.

Do you agree with Ms Graffy that it was a PR stunt? And how is the Muslim world viewing what has happened?

Send us your thoughts and let us know what you think, we hope to include them in the programme tonight.
