Freed from Guantánamo, but stuck in limbo

Clip: Season 2013 | 8m 18s

On Saturday, we look at the story of six former prisoners from Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. These ethnic Chinese men known as Uighurs were rounded up in Afghanistan and Pakistan after 9/11. They spent eight years in prison before being cleared of any wrongdoing by U.S. courts, and now find themselves stranded in a legal and political limbo on the tiny Pacific island nation of Palau.
