RIGA - The Pentagon announced late last week that it had transferred a prisoner from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay to Latvia.

The identity of the prisoner is being kept secret at the request of the Latvian government. Another prisoner was simultaneously transported to Spain.

"The United States coordinated with the governments of Spain and Latvia to ensure the transfers took place under appropriate security measures and will remain in close consultation with both governments regarding these individuals," the Pentagon said in a statement.
