PUT BUSH AND BLAIR ON TRIAL – urges just-freed Binyam Mohamed

UK resident Binyam Mohamed, recently freed from Guantanamo Bay, has called for ex-US President Bush to be put on trial over his rendition and torture and, if there is enough evidence, the former UK Premier Blair as well.

Mohamed said he would not have faced torture or extraordinary rendition but for British involvement in his case.
