      CHILDREN HELD AT CAMP XRAY, US ADMITS
      Australian Broadcasting Corporation, 4/23/03
      http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/s836988.htm

      The US military has revealed it is holding juveniles at its high-
      security prison for terrorists at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, known as
      Camp Xray.

      The commander of the joint task force at Guantanamo, Major General
      Geoffrey Miller, says more than one child under the age of 16 is at
      the detention centre.

      However, Maj Gen Miller has revealed little more about their welfare.

      Maj Gen Miller says the US is holding "juvenile enemy combatants" at
      the centre, confirming rumours of children being held.

      He has refused to reveal how many there are, their exact ages or
      their countries of origin.

      He says they are being well cared for and are kept in facilities
      separate to adult prisoners.

      The children are still being interrogated and will continue to be
      held at GuantanamoÂ…

      They have not been tried or convicted of any offence but are being
      held as part of what the US calls its war on terror.
