6 Guantanamo detainees arrive in Palau
Only one Uighur left in U.S. custody

KOROR, Palau - Six Chinese Muslims released from Guantanamo Bay but still wanted at home as separatists arrived Sunday on their new tropical island home of Palau after the tiny Pacific nation agreed to a U.S. request to resettle the men.

The ethnic Uighurs were met Sunday at Palau's airport by President Johnson Toribiong and then taken to their residence to rest, a statement from the president's office said.

Palau agreed in June to Washington's request to temporarily resettle the men, who have been held by the U.S. since their capture in Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2001.
