Four Afghan Guantanamo inmates sent home

Four Afghan detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison have been sent back to their home country, the Pentagon has said.

Shawali Khan, Khi Ali Gul, Abdul Ghani and Mohammed Zahir were repatriated after a thorough review of their cases.

US President Barack Obama has pledged to close the facility, opened in 2002 to hold "enemy combatants" in what the US termed its war on terror.
