US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel on Tuesday named congressional committee
attorney Paul Lewis as a special envoy to work on closing the US military
prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
The announcement was part of President Barack Obama's renewed push to close
the prison, which remains open despite his 2009 pledge to shutter the
facility within a year.
