Two Yemenite hunger strikers at the US military base in Guantanamo are dying despite their jailers" efforts to forcefully feed them, claim their attorneys.

Abu Bakah al-Shamrani and Abu Anas are extremely weak. "Al-Shamrani just weighs 32 kilos", says the Group Reprieve.

The group claims that Camp Echo, made up of isolated cells, is an institution where inmates are "forcefully fed" but they are so deteriorated that they are moved around in wheel chairs.

A military source said last December that the protesters were 84 but human right groups claim many more.

Lt. Col. Jeremy Martin says the Army considers a prisoner on strike when he refuses nine consecutive meals. 76 detainees began the hunger strike last August to protest their indefinite imprisonment.

Around 550 to 750 prisoners labeled "enemy combatants" have been withheld at the illegal US naval base in Guantanamo, east Cuba, for more than three years without access to an attorney.
