Diego Garcia is the largest island in the Chagos Archipelago region which lies in the Indian ocean and is halfway between Indonesia and Africa.
The island currently houses a vast US military base, the Chagos Islands population was expelled in the late 1960's, after the USA had leased them from the UK. It is due to expire in 2016.
The inhabitants always believed they would be able to return to their homes. Now it seems the lease will be extended by a further 20 years.(to be agreed by December 2014).
It seems Diego Garcia may never be retuned to its people.
