Obama Signs Bill, Stops Gitmo Closure

US President Barack Obama has signed a major defense bill effectively preventing the closure of the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.

Obama has vowed to repeal the curbs regarding the Guantanamo Bay prison, saying he was forced into signing the bill on Friday.

The new bill bars Guantanamo suspects from being brought to the United States for trial.

The US president further stated that the bill was vital for funding the country's foreign wars in 2011 and that was why he signed it into law.'
