GUANTANAMO, Cuba (AP) - Peace activists marched to the Cuban military zone wrapping around the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay on Thursday, demanding the United States close its prison for terror suspects five years after the first detainees arrived.

The dozen protesters, including relatives of one prisoner and American "peace mom" Cindy Sheehan, walked along a lonesome, asphalt highway connecting the Cuban city of Guantanamo to the military zone. Sheehan wore a peace sign medallion around her neck.

"Gitmo prison is a source of shame, no more torture in our name!" the protesters chanted, holding signs saying "due process is overdue" and "there are no justice-free zones." The brother of British citizen Omar Deghayes carried a large color photograph of the detainee that read "justice for my brother."
