WASHINGTON (AP) - A European Union delegation is posing a list of questions to the Obama administration about the Guantanamo Bay prison.

The delegation is seeking answers for the member states who are considering a U.S. request for help in closing the prison and relocating the detainees.

Jacques Barrot, the EU’s justice and home affairs commissioner, and Czech Interior Minister Ivan Langer presented the questions they described as detailed to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday.

Langer said the officials did not convey conditions the United States would have to meet for European countries to accept detainees. He said that any U.S. information would be distributed to EU member states, who will decide individually whether to accept detainees.
