A bay on the island of Cuba, with an area of 116 km², it was leased to the USA as a naval base in 1903 against an annual payment of US$ 2000. In 2002, a detainment camp was created within the base for prisoners captured by American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq; the Obama administration announced its closure, which has been postponed year after year. The uninhabited island of Navassa (5 km²), situated between Jamaica and Haiti, has been under the authority of the Department of Defense since 1996. Cuba and Haiti lay claim to it.
