MoD sued over Afghan 'rendition'





Reprieve said the men were arrested by British troops in Iraq in 2004, handed to the US and "illegally rendered" to Bagram Air Force Base.

It says the men are among hundreds held "beyond the rule of law".

The Ministry of Defence said it had no reason to believe the allegations about their welfare were accurate.

It had previously told Reprieve, which is seeking to represent the men, that it would violate their rights under the Data Protection Act to reveal the identities.
