The prison camps of Guantanamo Bay

The detainee operation at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, began with a makeshift chain-link-fence compound called Camp X-Ray. It has since expanded to seven permanent prison camps, including Camp 7, a secret CIA-run facility for "high-value" detainees at an undisclosed location on the island.

Camp X-Ray, the first prison facility for detainees, is now abandoned. Known for its harsh conditions and iconic images of detainees wearing orange jumpsuits behind cyclone fences, the camp is now overrun with weeds and "banana rats."
