Three freed Guantanamo Bay detainees, who were resettled in Uruguay, pray during their protest outside the U.S. embassy in Montevideo, Uruguay, Friday, April 24, 2015. From left are Omar Abdelahdi Faraj and Ali Husain Shaaban, both of Syria, and Adel bin Muhammad El Ouerghi of Tunisia. The men are protesting after they were asked to leave a hotel where some stayed periodically, and demand Washington help them financially. They say the house where they were initially resettled didn't have enough space for all of them. The men spent 12 years at the U.S. military prison but were never charged and released after officials determined they were no longer a threat.
