The original courtroom at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2014 in this photo approved for release by the U.S. military. A base spokeswoman says that, in 2010, asbestos under floor tile was either “removed” or “remediated.” She also says that several of the buildings on the compound, not shown here by order of the U.S. military, have asbestos, a carcinogen, that “does not present a risk because there is no exposure pathway.”
