The republicans who control the US Congress have come out strongly against President Obama’s latest plan to close down the Guantanamo Bay detention centre in Cuba. The latest proposal would transfer some detainees overseas, others to prisons in the United States. The president has described keeping Guantanamo open as contrary to American values.

The US-based chocolate maker Mars says it’s recalling millions of chocolate bars from 55 countries because bits of plastic have been found in one of its products. In a statement the company said it sincerely apologised to its customers.
