MI5 telegrams 'fed interrogation'
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/7930708.stm

Mr Mohamed has said he was tortured while he was held in US custody

A UK resident detained at Guantanamo Bay has released alleged MI5 memos which he claims show government collusion in his interrogation.

Ethiopian-born Binyam Mohamed, 30, told the Mail on Sunday they were sent to the CIA in November 2002, at a time he said he was being tortured in Morocco.

His claims of British collusion are being investigated by the government.

He also told the paper he was held in continual darkness for weeks on end in a prison in Kabul, Afghanistan.

How MI5 colluded in my torture: Binyam Mohamed claims British agents fed Moroccan torturers their questions - WORLD EXCLUSIVE

MI5 directly colluded in the savage 'medieval' torture in Morocco of Binyam Mohamed, the Guantanamo inmate who was last week released to live in Britain.

The revelation came as Mohamed broke his silence about the full horror of his seven years in detention in a compelling interview with The Mail on Sunday.

Documents obtained by this newspaper - which were disclosed to Mohamed through a court case he filed in America - show that months after he was taken to Morocco aboard an illegal 'extraordinary rendition' flight by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, MI5 twice gave the CIA details of questions they wanted his interrogators to put to him, together with dossiers of photographs.

At the time, in November 2002, Mohamed was being subject to intense, regular beatings and sessions in which his chief Moroccan torturer, a man he knew as Marwan, slashed his chest and genitals with a scalpel.
