No Libya rendition charges for MI6

There is "insufficient evidence" to charge anyone from MI6 with involvement in the rendition of two men and their families to Libya, prosecutors say.

Ex-Libyan dissident Abdel Hakim Belhaj says MI6 helped to arrange his and his wife's rendition - saying they were covertly taken from Thailand to Libya.

Sami al-Saadi and his family were also sent to Libya in 2004, where he was allegedly tortured.

Prosecutors said UK officials did not transfer or ill-treat alleged victims.

Gordon Corera reports.
