Former Guantanamo Bay detainees on Tuesday thanked the people of Palau for taking them in, but signaled the Pacific Island nation would be a temporary home. The six ethnic Chinese Muslims began general orientation of their new home on Tuesday, getting their first look at the capital of Koror and meeting some officials. President Johnson Toribiong welcomed the group when they arrived before dawn Sunday on a secret flight, and he will treat them to a personal tour later this week.
