List of Guantanamo Bay detainees 39 detainees remain at Guantanamo Bay.
This list of Guantánamo prisoners has the known identities of prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp
, but is compiled from various sources and is incomplete. In official documents, the United States Department of Defense
(DoD) continues to make intermittent efforts to redact
prisoner's names. As of September 2005 they had not published an official list of detainees. On April 19, 2006, the DoD released a list with 558 names in what appears to be a fax
or other scanned image.
The Associated Press
published the list in more accessible text form.
Detainees by nationality
The Washington Post
maintains a list of the prisoners known or suspected to have been held in Guantánamo Bay.
On March 3, 2006 the DoD partially complied with a court order
to release the names of the remaining Guantánamo detainees. The court order required the DoD to release the names of all the detainees.
Initially, the DoD released only 317 names. On April 19, 2006, the DoD released a list with 558 names. Although Judge Jed Rakoff
had already dismissed this argument, Pentagon spokesmen Bryan Whitman justified withholding the names out of a concern for the detainees' privacy. On April 20, 2006, the DoD released a portable document format
file that listed 558 names.
The 558 individuals on the list were those whose detention had been reviewed by a Combatant Status Review Tribunal (CSRT). The list gave the detainee's ID number, their name, and their home country.
The names of several hundred prisoners who had been released prior to the commencement of the CSRTs were not released. The list did not specify whether the prisoners were still in detention at Guantanamo; whether they had been determined to be "enemy combatants"; whether they were released, or repatriated to the custody of their home countries. On May 15, 2006, the DOD released what they called a complete list of all 759 former and current inmates who had been held in military custody in the detainment camps after a Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA) action was filed by the Associated Press
On June 17, 2013, the Miami Herald
published a list, obtained using the Freedom of Information Act
, of 48 prisoners who were designated for indefinite detainment.
On May 31, 2014, the Obama Administration
was reported to have swapped 5 prisoners (Abdul Haq Wasiq, Mullah Norullah Nori, Khairullah Khairkhwa, Mohammed Nabi and Mohammed Fazi) in return for Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl
who was captured after deserting his post.
On January 16, 2017, the Federal government of the United States announced that ten more prisoners were released to Oman, leaving about 45 detainees.
Of all prisoners at Guantanamo, Afghans were the largest group (29 percent), followed by Saudi Arabians (17 percent), Yemenis (15 percent), Pakistanis (9 percent), and Algerians (3 percent). Overall, 50 nationalities were present at Guantanamo.

By January 19, 2017, at the end of the Obama Administration, the detention center remained open with 41 detainees remaining.
