Oman said it received 10 Inmates from the US Military prison at Guantanamo Bay , in a move to reduce their number days before US President Barack Obama leaves Office.

The statement from the Sultanate’s Foreign Ministry did not disclose the Nationality of the prisoners who would reside in the Gulf Arab Country on a temporary basis.

The latest transfers would leave the number of Guantanamo Detainees at 45, based on figures the Pentagon issued when four Yemenis were sent to Saudi Arabia on January 6.
