On Jan. 11, 2002, the first group of suspected terrorists and Taliban fighters was flown to Camp X-Ray at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. During the past two years, about 745 detainees from more than 40 countries have been brought to the detention center. Today, detainees are housed in a newer facility named Camp Delta. So far, 147 prisoners have been released: 13 of them transferred for detention in their home countries. As detainees have been released, other suspected terrorists have been flown in to take their places. Along the way, there have been at least 34 suicide attempts by 21 detainees.
