A Saudi Arabian detainee at Guantanamo Bay apparently committed suicide Wednesday, the US military said.
The detainee was found unresponsive in his cell by guards Wednesday afternoon, the military said in a statement from US Southern Command, which oversees the military prison on the US Naval Base in southeast Cuba. Attempts to revive him were not successful, it said.
It would be the fourth suicide at Guantanamo since the prison camp opened in January 2002. On June 10, 2006, two Saudi detainees and one Yemeni hanged themselves with sheets.
