Uighur Prisoners at Guantanamo, June 1, 2009. Seventeen Uighurs have been cleared for release, but are not being allowed into the United States. They were members of a group that opposed Chinese Communist oppression of the Uighur Muslim minority in northwestern China. If they were to return to China, they would be vulnerable to severe punishment.(AP Photo/Brennan Linsley, Pool)
