The pair - both ethnic Uighurs - were mistakenly captured as enemy combatants in Pakistan more than four years ago.

The US military determined a year ago that Abu Bakker Qassim and A'del Abdu al-Hakim were not "enemy combatants" as had been thought when they were captured in Pakistan in 2001.

However, the Bush administration says it cannot return the Uighurs to China because they would face persecution there.

It does not want to admit them to the US, and cannot find another country to take them.

The US Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by two Chinese Muslims who are seeking release from the US detention centre at Guantanamo Bay
It is a very interesting situation. They are not guilty but cannot be released. It is something new.

Five years done, how many to go?
It's nice not to be persecuted.
Time to seriously think about a new chuff chart.

What would you propose as a solution Sergey?

Maybe Mother Russia would take them.
Why not? Murat Nasyrov is ethnically Uygurian. He is very popular singer in Russia.



Also there are many Uygurs in Kazakhstan. World is huge. Anyway the pair has right to be free and decide their fate. Maybe they wish return to China?
