Binyam Mohammed (dangerous criminal) to be released from Gitmo.

The Guardian:

"Binyam Mohamed, the UK resident detained in Guantanamo Bay, is to be visited by a British police doctor and could be returned to Britain shortly, the foreign secretary, David Miliband, said today.

The US authorities had agreed to treat Mohamed's case as ' priority'' Miliband said, enabling Britain to work with Washington for 'a swift resolution'.

British diplomats have been given permission to see Mohamed and make preparations for his release and flight back to the UK."

Not that the political brew-haha going on in the UK and the possibilty of him dying while refusing food might have had any baring on this sudden rush to resolve his case.

The Guardian:

"Allegations that Mohamed was tortured were at the heart of a legal row last week after high court judges complained that Miliband had used national security grounds to block the public release of documents relating to his case. Mohamed's lawyers say his health has been damaged by hunger strikes in protest at his continued incarceration."

So, hunger strikes do work.
