Three Guantanamo Bay detainees have committed suicide, hanging themselves with nooses made of sheets and clothes, the commander of the US detention center said Saturday night. The three detainees were the first reported deaths among the hundreds of detainees held at the isolated base in eastern Cuba. Two men from Saudi Arabia and one from Yemen were found "unresponsive and not breathing in their cells" early Saturday, according to a statement from the Miami-based US Southern Command, which has jurisdiction over the prison. Attempts were made to revive the prisoners, but they failed.
