In his annual State of the Union address, US President Barack Obama told Americans that 2014 should be the year to finally close the prison at Guantanamo Bay.

Once again, Obama renewed his vow - dating back to the start of his presidency five years ago - to shut the internationally condemned jail at the US Naval Base in Cuba.

"This needs to be the year Congress lifts the remaining restrictions on detainee transfers and we close the prison at Guantanamo Bay," Obama said.

He did not offer any new suggestions on how he intends to empty Guantanamo of its remaining 155 prisoners. They were captured overseas after the September 11, 2001, attacks and have been held without trial ever since.
