Former Gitmo detainees returning to terrorism

Five years after President Obama vowed to close Guantanamo Bay prison, there are still more than 160 detainees being held at the facility at a cost of about $150 million a year.

But closing a facility that houses some of the most dangerous terrorists in the world has a cost of its own.

Pentagon correspondent Chris Lawrence is Outfront with the story.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte: Libya terror suspect Abu Anas al-Libi should go to Guantanamo

Abu Anas al-Libi, who was seized by United States special forces, is being interrogated aboard a Navy ship in the Mediterranean. He is wanted in connection with the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people.

Libya summons U.S. ambassador over al Libi capture

His next stop is likely a criminal court in New York, which is causing a lot of outrage here in the U.S.

Senator Kelly Ayotte is a leading voice against trying al Libi in a criminal court.

"He should go to Guantanamo so we can have a lengthy interrogation," Ayotte said Tuesday on Erin Burnett OutFront.

Hopes of 'Gitmo' closing dim

Ayotte supports keeping Gitmo open for high-level detainees. She questioned why al Libi is being held at sea.

"Ships are not a permanent place where we detain people – he needs to go to Guantanamo."

Malibu High School teachers worry school is giving them cancer

Teachers at Malibu High School are blaming a recent cancer outbreak and other health concerns on alleged contaminants at their school.

Three teachers have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer in the past six month and three more have been treated for other thyroid issues.

Staff members have also experienced migraines, skin rashes, unexplained hair loss, respiratory problems, and even bladder cancer.

School officials say there's no evidence that anything is wrong, but an environmental consulting firm is investigating the concerns.

Miguel Marquez reports for OutFront.
