Germany says US data on Guantanamo inmates insufficient | Germany | Deutsche Welle | 10.05.2009
The German government says it cannot accept any detainees from the Guantanamo prison facility until Washington provides more information on them and answers some key questions.  

In a newspaper interview published on Sunday, Interior Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble complained that Washington had not yet provided sufficient information for Germany to act on resettling Guantanamo detaineees.

Germany's Bild am Sonntag newspaper reported that Washington had provided Berlin with a list of nine Chinese Muslims, members of the Uighur ethnic group, that it hoped Germany would offer refuge to.

"The information that we've received so far from Washington is insufficient for us to take a decision on whether to accept any one of the cases," Schaueble told the paper.
