Detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba are exhibiting signs of “accelerated ageing”, according to a senior official from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

Patrick Hamilton, the ICRC’s head of delegation for the United States and Canada, has called on the US administration and Congress to find sustainable solutions to address the issue.

Hamilton visited the facility in March after a 20-year hiatus and was struck by the symptoms of accelerated ageing exhibited by those still detained.

He has called for better mental and physical healthcare and more frequent family contact for the detainees.

The Guantanamo camp was established in 2002 to house foreign terrorism suspects and has been criticised for harsh interrogation methods amounting to torture.

The Biden administration has expressed a desire to close the facility but has not yet presented a plan for doing so.
