Transfer of US prison to Afghans delayed again

KABUL, Afghanistan – The long-awaited transfer of the U.S. detention center in Afghanistan has been delayed once again as a deal struck between the two governments broke down the day before a planned handover ceremony.

As recently as Friday morning, Afghan workers at the Defense Ministry were arranging transport for dignitaries and journalists to attend Saturday’s ceremony at the detention center adjoining the Bagram Air Field, a U.S. base about an hour outside of the capital.

Then on Saturday morning, organizers told journalists that the ceremony had been canceled. Afghan officials declined to give a reason for the cancellation.

U.S. forces spokesman Jamie Graybeal says details of the transfer still needed to be worked out and a full agreement has not been reached.
