      Guantanamo inmates may be moved to US
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      WASHINGTON, June 30: US officials may move hundreds of prisoners from
      a base in Cuba to facilities within the United States after Supreme
      Court's rulings that granted military detainees access to US courts,
      the Los Angeles Times reported on Wednesday.

      Pentagon and justice department officials said they were considering
      moving all the prisoners from the US naval base at Guantanamo Bay,
      Cuba, to a conservative judicial district within the US, according to
      the newspaper.

      Consolidating the proceedings in one court would avoid transporting
      prisoners and government lawyers to federal courts across the
      country, the report said.

      Monday's Supreme Court rulings rebuffed President George W. Bush's
      assertion of sweeping powers to indefinitely hold 'enemy combatants'
      after the Sept 11 attacks. Administration officials told the
      newspaper that they were unprepared for the ruling. -Reuters
