Guantanamo Bay detainees to sue; TERROR.
Legal representatives for eight men freed from the notorious detention camp in Cuba are said to have issued writs against MI5 and MI6. It is believed the men are claiming British security services were complicit in the process leading to their detention.
Five of the eight are British, while the three other men live in the UK.
Two separate writs were said to have been lodged by the eight men.
Reports said the first writ was issued at the High Court in London by lawyers acting for Omar Deghayes, Jamil el-Banna and Bisher al Rawi.
All three men live in the UK but are foreign nationals.
Britons Moazzam Begg, from Birmingham, Richard Belmar, Rhuhel Ahmed, Shafiq Rasul and Asif Iqbal, are named as claimants in the other writ.
