9/11 arrest pilot Lotfi Raissi wins compensation battle

Breaking News

A pilot wrongly accused over the 9/11 attacks in the US has won his legal battle for compensation.

Lotfi Raissi, an Algerian-born British resident, was arrested in the UK shortly after the attacks amid claims that he was a key member of the plot.

He was held in custody for nearly five months before being released when a judge found there was no evidence to link him to any form of terrorism.

The Ministry of Justice has said Mr Raissi was "eligible" for compensation.
