Uruguay's president says the U.N. refugee agency will help six former Guantanamo prisoners obtain housing in his country.

President Tabare Vazquez told reporters at the Summit of the Americas in Panama that each of the six will soon have a home, thanks to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees.

The six freed prisoners have struggled to adapt to life in Uruguay since arriving in December following years of captivity at Guantanamo. They have not gotten jobs and are getting by on about $600 a month provided by a non-governmental organization.
