Report: UK Government handed Libyan terror suspect to Gaddafi regime

A Libyan terror suspect was handed over to the Gaddafi regime in 2004 by the UK Government, the BBC reports.

A letter from an MI6 officer reportedly refers to the rendition of Abdel Hakim Belhaj, congratulating the Libyans on the "safe arrival" of the "air cargo".

Mr Belhaj claims he was tortured in jail. Successive UK Governments deny any complicity in torture or rendition.
