A news report about Saddam Hussein's execution was removed from a recreation area at the Guantanamo Bay detention center after a detainee's lawyer accused officials of using it to frighten prisoners, a US military spokesman said Thursday. Authorities also removed an Arabic-language poster that depicted Saddam's capture, court appearances and death sentence, said Navy Cmdr. Robert Durand, a Guantanamo Bay spokesman. The military decided the poster "appeared insensitive" and did not belong in the recreation area, where authorities post information about current events for detainees. "The intent of this poster was to show that the Iraqi people are making progress and have delivered justice," Durand said in an e-mailed statement from the detention center on a US Navy base in southeastern Cuba.
