    DETAINEES are being better treated at the US prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, and the Red Cross is satisfied with its access to them, the humanitarian agency's chief said.

    Jakob Kellenberger, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), said detention conditions at Guantanamo had "improved considerably" over the past four years.
    "There have also been improvements in the treatment of prisoners, but that does not mean that there are no longer any problems at all," he said.....

    .....He called it "extremely regrettable" that intense media focus on Guantanamo seemed to distract from troubled sites in places like Chechnya and Burma, where the ICRC has suspended prison visits over disagreements with local authorities.

    It's nice to know we are now better than Russia and Burma.
