Prisoners at Guantanamo in Cuba

Ireland could be home to two detainees from the US camp at Guantanamo Bay.

Irish Foreign Affairs Minister Micheal Martin says the Government may resettle two men from Uzbekistan once they are released.

Taoiseach Brian Cowen announced that Ireland would accept a small number of prisoners from the controversial camp while he was in Washington for the St Patrick's Day celebrations.

The US is releasing the two men because they say they pose no threat.

However, the men can not be returned to their own countries as they are believed to be at risk of torture.
