'Awful' conditions of last British Guantanamo detainee


Friends of the last Briton to be held at Guantanamo Bay, which opened 10 years ago on Wednesday, say his health is deteriorating under the pressure.

His lawyer says the conditions at the US prison in Cuba where Shaker Aamer, from Wandsworth, has been detained for the last decade without trial are "awful".

In this report Alex Bushill talks to his friend and former detainee Moazzam Begg and Clive Stafford Smith, the director of Reprieve.
