MIAMI (Reuters) - The U.S. military expects to file revised charges against a group of Guantanamo prisoners by February and present the first evidence against them at trials in the summer, the tribunals chief prosecutor said on Friday.

Hundreds of foreign captives have been held as suspected terrorists without trial and mostly without charges since the prison at a U.S. Naval base on Cuba opened nearly five years ago in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks.

Air Force Col. Moe Davis, the chief prosecutor, said in a telephone interview that pretrial hearings could resume in March, but he added: "I don't see us getting to trial on the merits until some time this summer."
