Note from Guantanamo spox regarding hunger strike.

"Following today's release, Joint Task Force Guantanamo Bay will no longer issue daily hunger strike updates.  Since 2007, there has been a small number of detainees who have chosen to hunger strike long-term with occasional increases and decreases.  Following July 10, 2013, the number of hunger strikers has dropped significantly, and we believe today's numbers represent those who wish to continue to strike.  As always, our medical professionals will continue to monitor and evaluate the detainees while providing them with the appropriate level of care. From this point forward we will respond to queries on hunger strikes individually."
