A source said six Chinese Muslims who had been detained at Guantanamo Bay had arrived in the tiny Pacific nation of Palau for resettlement. The men flew in to Palau early Sunday, the source, who had knowledge of the transfer, told The Associated Press. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter. Overnight, about 10 policemen stood outside the home where the men will live, on a side street in the heart of Koror, where most of Palau's 20,000 residents live and work. Palau offered earlier this year to resettle the Chinese, who are members of the Uighur minority. They have been held by the US since their capture in Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2001.
