Detainee Binyam Mohamed 'horrendously treated'

Around a dozen men who accused British security forces of colluding in their torture overseas are to get millions in compensation from the UK government.

Some of the men, who are all British citizens or residents, were detained at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp in Cuba.

At least six of them alleged UK forces were complicit in their torture before they arrived at Guantanamo.

One of the men, Binyam Mohamed was detained in Pakistan eight years ago. His solicitor Sapna Malik said her client deserved the compensation.
