Detainees in Guantanamo Bay detention camps will be able to watch live broadcasts of the US presidential elections.

Some prisoners had previously watched all three presidential debates.

The facility is home to what Washington has called "unlawful enemy combatants", many of whom have been imprisoned without trial or access to the due process guaranted in the US constitution.
