Waiting for the next Harry Potter book to arrive:
Guantanamo Bay – “War on terror” detainees at Guantanamo are avid Harry Potter readers and eagerly await the next book in the series featuring the schoolboy wizard, the camp librarian says.
While religion tops the reading lists of the overwhelmingly Muslim detainees, Harry Potter was a big favourite, said the chief librarian at the US-run prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
“When you get to fiction, definitely Harry Potter,” said the librarian, who would only give her first name, Maggie.
The camp has even pre-ordered the next instalment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, which is due out later this year.
“They’re all waiting for number seven to come out,” she told reporters.
