Pentagon officials have confirmed that Guantanamo detainees may still be kept in detention, even if they are found not guilty by a military tribunal.


They say detainees could be kept prisoner if they are considered a security risk.


If found guilty, they could also be held beyond any sentence laid down by the tribunal.


The Pentagon this week laid the first charges against two foreign detainees held in Guantanamo Bay.
