Islamabad, June 29 : Pakistan is preparing special cells to house Guantanamo detainees who may be shifted to the country with the US administration under pressure to close down the detention facility on the Cuban island, a report said.

A top Pakistani official said a special facility has already been built in Faisalabad, adjacent to the central jail there. Another such facility is under construction in Multan and is expected to be completed within the next few months. Work on a detention centre adjacent to Adyala Jail in Rawalpindi has also started.

These facilities are being funded by the US and will work under the direct jurisdiction of Pakistan Interior Ministry. Special staff will be deputed to the centres to work in conjunction with US officials, reported The Post daily.

It was learnt that the US is considering a plan under which inmates will be returned to special facilities in their countries of origin. There are an estimated 65 or so Pakistanis in Guantanamo, including Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the mastermind of the 9/11 atacks.
