Guantanamo detainees' cells ransacked

 Officials at US Guantanamo bay detention facilities are admitting that they have been ransacking the cells of several detainees on trial for alleged involvement in the September Eleventh attacks. Legal and other documents -- as well as personal items were taken from the cells of several defendants while they were in court during searches on Monday and Wednesday -- prompting Cheryl Bormann -- attorney for Walid Muhammad Salih Bin Attash -- to say that her client believes "that every time he comes to court his legal materials are going to be seized." Many prisoners there are labeled as "Non-Legal Combatants" -- a classification that enabled prisoners there to be held without due process of law -- outside of international legal guidelines such as the Geneva Convention. Those currently on trial face death for their alleged involvement in the 9/11 terror attacks -- serious consequences in court that experts say is making up the rules as it goes along.
