The investigation of security breaches at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp is expanding after the espionage arrests of two servicemen who worked at the maximum-security compound, the Los Angeles Times says.

Investigators are checking at least two other people, including an outside contractor. “I do get the sense from our law enforcement guys that other arrests are imminent,” a Navy official said.

Senior Airman Ahmad I. Al-Halabi, 24, is being held at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Ca. Among the charges: trying to pass military secrets to Syria, his native country. The other suspect, Army Capt. James Y. Yee, was detained at a naval air station in Jacksonville, Fla., after he allegedly was found carrying classified documents from Guantanamo, including notes on prisoners and diagrams of the detention facility.
