WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama would veto a bill being considered by Republicans that aims to freeze all transfers of terrorism suspects out of the US prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, White House spokesman Eric Schultz told reporters on Thursday.

The bill was proposed by Republicans in the wake of attacks by Islamic militant gunmen in Paris in January.
