Russia assails US over Guantanamo prison
Russia in the past has reacted angrily to the accusations of human rights breaches that the US has leveled at it.
Moscow: Russia's Foreign Ministry has accused the US of breaking international law by keeping terror suspects in indefinite custody without trial at the Guantanamo Bay prison.
In a statement posted on its website on Sunday, the ministry said the prison at the US Navy base in eastern Cuba represents a "flagrant violation of international law."
The Foreign Ministry also criticized the National Defence Authorisation Act, signed into law by President Barack Obama on December 31, which includes a provision allowing indefinite military detention without trial.
The ministry claimed the act contradicts US obligations under international humanitarian law.
