Spain has agreed to resettle four more Guantanamo Bay prison inmates, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Thursday, in addition to a detainee from the Palestinian Territories transferred to Spain earlier this year.
Spain had said it was willing to take up to five prisoners from the illegal U.S. military prison in Guantanamo, a focus of criticims on torture charges.
Holder said it had not yet been decided which detainees would go to Spain.
"We continue to work with our Spanish allies to identify people who would be appropriate to be resettled in Spain," he said at a news conference.
U.S. President Barack Obama pledged to close Guantanamo by last January.
Holder said the U.S. planned to shut the prison as quickly as it could.
