MIAMI (AP) - The U.S. military says guards have clashed with prisoners amid a hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay, leading officers to move detainees from communal to single cells at Camp 6.

The military accuses detainees of covering surveillance cameras, windows and partitions, preventing guards from observing them during a hunger strike that has dragged on for more than two months. Lawyers have alleged that most of the 166 prisoners are participating.

The U.S. military said in a statement Saturday that detainees used improvised weapons to resist the transfer, leading guards to fire four less-than-lethal rounds. Officials said no guards or detainees were seriously injured.

The military also said that medical personnel have evaluated each detainee.
