    While campaigning for the US presidency, Barack Obama often repeated a central promise to close down Guantanamo.

    But a US policy u-turn came this March when Obama signed an executive order creating a formal system for detainees to be held indefinitely.

    Military trials at Guantanamo Bay also resumed, and today there is no longer any clear closing date in sight.
