Latif had been disciplined following a recent "splashing" incident and was being housed in a maximum security facility at Guantanamo. He had allegedly assaulted a guard with a "cocktail," meaning he had allegedly thrown liquid at the guard. "Cocktails" are often concocted from feces, urine and other bodily fluids.
The release from JTF-Guantanamo says Latif's remains are being treated with respect for Islamic culture and traditions. They will be repatriated to Yemen.
