A Pentagon-directed review process cleared 46 detainees at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, this year for transfer to authorities in their home countries. They were among 330 detainees who underwent a second round of annual Administrative Review Board hearings.

A Pentagon website indicated decisions had been made on at least 211 cases in 2006. Officials ruled that no detainees should be released, the 46 should be transferred and 165 should remain at Guantanamo.
