Eight prisoners have now died at the U.S. Detention Center in Guantanamo Bay.

The U.S. military says an Afghan prisoner held at the Guantanamo detention center has been found dead in an apparent suicide.

The prisoner -- identified only as Inayatullah -- was found by guards in a recreation yard during routine checks at the facility.

Inayatullah is the eighth prisoner to have died at Guantanamo since the United States began sending terror suspects to the U.S. naval base in Cuba in 2002.
