President Obama released five more prisoners from Guantanamo Bay Naval Base overnight, Fox News reported. They were held for more than a decade and were sent to resettle in Kazakhstan.

The men were arrested in Pakistan following the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001, but were never charged, The Daily Mail reported. Three of the men were from Yemen and identified by The Daily Mail as: “Asim Thabit Abdullah Al-Khalaqi, who is about 46; Muhammad Ali Husayn Khanayna, who is about 36; and Sabri Mohammad al Qurashi, about 44.”

The other two men were originally from Tunisia. The Daily Mail identified them as “49-year-old Adel Al-Hakeemy, and Abdallah Bin Ali al Lufti, who military records show is about 49.”

Almost 30 prisoners have been released from Gitmo this year, and just under 130 prisoners remain.

Fox News also reported an expensive school will be built at Guantanamo Bay costing $65 million dollars.
