CONTROVERSIAL plans for an execution chamber at the Guantanamo Bay
naval base in Cuba are being studied by the US military as it prepares
to bring suspected al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorists -- including two
Australian -- to trial later this year.
The chamber could be part of a permanent prison where 680
detainees captured during the war in Afghanistan are being held.
The Australian inmates are Adelaide's David Hicks, who was
arrested by US forces allegedly fighting for the Taliban regime, and
Sydney man Mamdouh Habib .
