Pentagon seeks funds to fix-up Guantanamo

Of the $200m requested for renovation of prison, most would go towards new barracks for US troops.

    President Barack Obama famously promised five years ago to close the US detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

    Now, the controversial prison may receive renovations funds, and with less than a quarter of the requested $200m to go towards housing for detainees.

    A large sum, meanwhile, would be used for new barracks for US troops.
