Saudi contact groups were conferring with the US authorities to regain all the 53 Saudis still held in Guantanamo without trial, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) quoted Abdul-Aziz as saying. Seventy-seven have returned to their homeland so far, including the latest 16.

The families of the detainees were informed of their arrival and were expected to meet them soon, Saudi Interior Ministry spokesman Mansour Turk said.
