\"That has led to an almost complete overhaul of an entire building behind EOCI\'s walls. One building, known as the H Unit, will house the women, their work, their meals, their education and even their exercise time.\"

\"The infamous Guantanamo Bay Prison Camp (pictures), where the Taleban fighters picked up in Afghanistan are held, was toured by journalists yesterday. ‘Toured’ is something of a misnomer, perhaps, as the AP were only allowed to look inside an empty cell and not go anywhere near the occupied areas. The men being held are from 43 different countries, and have no access to lawyers or the courts. But it’s not all bad news: \"The military has increased detainees\' exercise time from 15 to 20 minutes a week\". \"

\"Kupers described the exercise areas, which are like concrete handball courts, as \"entirely unappealing. They are little more than a large cell,\" which he says explains why prison logs show that at least 90 percent of the prisoners routinely refuse their recreation time.\"
