Britain must publish US intelligence on torture, court rules

Breaking News

David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, said the Government will appeal against the ruling, which came despite his warnings that publication would be a major threat to British national security.

Mr Miliband had told the court that publishing the secret intelligence could jeopardise British-US relations and lead to the American authorities to downgrade their intelligence-sharing with the UK.

Rejecting that argument, the court said there was "overwhelming" public interest in publication.

Mr Mohamed was released earlier this year after seven years in US custody, including four in the camp at Guantanamo.
