2 former Gitmo inmates settling in new Swiss home

A aid agency for migrants says two Chinese Muslim brothers who were resettled in Switzerland after being released from the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, are studying French and are getting used to daily life.
The agency in the canton (state) of Jura says the Uighurs identified as Arkin and Bahtiyar Mahmut share an apartment in the northwestern town of Delemont.
It says the two are progressively learning how to handle the new life. It says they buy groceries, cook, meet other Chinese and explore the region.
The brothers arrived in Switzerland 10 days ago after eight years of detention at Guantanamo Bay.
The Jura Association for the Reception of Migrants published a photo of the two brothers on its web site Saturday.
