LONDON – Former Guantanamo Bay detainee Binyam Mohamed says he doesn't think he would have been taken to Morocco and tortured if it weren't for the involvement of the British security service, MI5.
Mohamed, a U.K. resident who was recently released, says in a BBC radio interview aired Friday that MI5 officers helped U.S. agents interrogate him following his 2002 arrest in Pakistan.
Mohamed says he was taken to Morocco by U.S. agents in July 2002. He claims he was tortured there and asked questions during interrogations that only could have come from the British.
The British government says it is reviewing the claims.
