Gitmo terror suspects get rare open hearings
GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba -- A Sudanese detainee denied being a threat to the United States during a rare open hearing Tuesday in military proceedings that are determining whether terrorism suspects jailed here should remain in custody.

The hearings, many of which have been closed to journalists, come amid a Defense Department effort to persuade home countries to take custody of some 545 detainees at this Navy base.
