Guantanamo: Obama Says Prison Must Close

President Barack Obama has said he will "re-engage" Congress on his failed attempt to close down the US detention centre at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.

Mr Obama called for the controversial prison's closure as a candidate for the White House in 2008, and vowed to shut the centre's gates for good within his first year in office.

But lawmakers on Capitol Hill objected and the facility has remained open.
