Cuba's Guantanamo Bay dilemma

Guantanamo Bay has become synonymous with the US detention centre but to the native population, there is another controversy surrounding the facility.

The prison is located on a US naval base inside Communist Cuba, a country with which the US cut diplomatic ties more than 50 years ago.

US forces control access to the bay and limit local fishermen to certain areas, leading to tension between the two cultures.
