Guantanamo ex-inmates start fresh in Uruguay

Uruguayans are being prepared to receive six controversial new residents who spent 12 years in US detention.

    Six former Guantanamo Bay prisoners have arrived in Uruguay to begin the process of settling into their new homes.

    After spending 12 years in prison, the former prisoners will now start over. They will begin to learn Spanish and about the Uruguayan customs.

    Uruguayans are also being prepared for what to expect from their controversial new residents.
