Nine Yemeni inmates held for years in the notorious US military’s Guantanamo prison camp in Cuba have been transferred to Saudi Arabia ahead of a visit to the Persian Gulf kingdom by US President Barack Obama.

Announcing the move on Saturday, US Defense Department said the transfer —  the largest from the facility since 10 Yemenis were sent to Oman in January – marked the first time the Saudi regime has accepted any Guantanamo captives.
