Guantanamo sees new construction a decade after prison ordered shut

A worn, yellow Bobcat excavator barrels over the defunct, 1940s-era McCalla Airfield, now the home of a maximum-security courthouse at Guantanamo Bay's Camp Justice.

The machine is bringing in materials needed for the expansion of offices and a new holding cell adjacent to the courthouse. The medically equipped cell will allow prisoners to live at the Camp Justice section of Guantanamo during court proceedings for the first time.

It has been 10 years since former US President Barack Obama issued an executive order to close the prison facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

However, not only has US President Donald Trump been determined to keep the camp open, his administration is now expanding it.
