Inayatullah Nassim, a 37-year-old Afghan, detained at Gitmo since 2007, is described in a statement by Joint Task Force Guantanamo as having been an admitted planner for al Qaeda.

“While conducting routine checks, the guards found the detainee unresponsive and not breathing,” the statement said.

“The guards immediately initiated CPR and also summoned medical personnel to the scene. After extensive lifesaving measures had been exhausted, the detainee was pronounced dead by a physician.

“As a matter of Department of Defense policy, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service has initiated an investigation of the incident to determine the cause and manner surrounding the death.”
