Emad Abdullah Hassan, a Yemeni inmate at Guantanamo Bay, introduced a historic lawsuit on Tuesday against the U.S. military prison’s force-feeding of detainees on hunger strikes. According to our friends over at The Huffington Post, the Pentagon calls force-feeding a “medical response to detainees who hunger strike,” but Islamic prisoners are saying that once Ramadan begins, their religious practices do not allow them to eat during the day. The U.S. government responded by saying they will only force-feed at night, so everyone’s religious beliefs will be respected.
