We can confirm that the Government and the other defendants have reached a settlement with the claimants.
There has been no admission of liability and no finding by any court of liability.
The Government has agreed to pay more than £2m to the family of a Libyan dissident after accepting its role in his illegal rendition. Sami al Saadi was imprisoned and tortured after he was forced to board a plane back to Tripoli in 2004.
