Grandmother's hunger strike for Guantanamo Bay's Shaker Aamer

A grandmother from Dorset has been on hunger strike in solidarity with Shaker Aamer - the last British man still being held in Guantanamo Bay.

Human rights lawyer Margaret Owen, 81, from Pentridge near Cranborne, kept a blog of her hunger strike.

Mr Aamer, from London, has been detained in the military prison for 11 years without being charged or tried.

The Foreign Office says the case "remains a high priority for the UK Government".
