|Two delegates from the International Committee of the Red Cross, one of them a physician, are at Guantanamo this week in an accelerated trip moved up from next month to check out the ongoing hunger strike at the war on terror prison. As of Tuesday, the Pentagon considered 31 out of 166 captives to meet the minimum criteria to be considered hunger strikers. Eleven of them were being fed nutritional supplements mostly through tubes snaked up a captive's nose and into his stomach. Of the 11, three were hospitalized, receiving both intravenous drips for rehydration as well as the tube feedings, Navy Capt. Robert Durand said from Guantanamo.|
