UK's MI5 challenged over torture

Rights groups says guidance to UK intelligence services condones complicity in torture.

    A British human rights group has launched legal action against the UK government over guidelines for the country's intelligence agencies on how to interrogate prisoners held overseas.

    Reprieve, which represents former Guantanamo Bay detainees, says unpublished guidance from 2002 and 2004 is unlawful because it condones complicity in torture.

    Alan Fisher reports from London.
