Algiers — Eight Algerians are still detained without trial in the US detention camp of Guantanamo, Minister of Justice Tayeb Louh said Monday in Algiers.

"Algeria is carrying on efforts with the United States and the legal procedures to transfer those eight prisoners are under way," SAID Louh said at a news conference he held jointly with his French counterpart, Christiane Taubira, who is on a working visit to Algeria.

"Algeria sent, some years ago, a Justice ministry's delegation in relation to the case of those (Algerian) detainees without trial in Guantanamo, whose number reached then 26, most of whom arrested in Afghanistan for links with terrorism."

"Negotiations with the American side had, then, allowed the transfer of 18 prisoners, all of whom were brought before Algerian courts, which acquitted some of them and convicted others," Louh concluded.
