MI5 breaks silence over Binyam Mohamed complicity claims

The head of MI5 Jonathan Evans has denied any British endorsement of, or collusion in, the torture of British resident Binyam Mohamed and said that media reports to the contrary were baseless, groundless and ludicrous.

And he said that it is vital for the people of Britain to back the intelligence service rather than undermine it, as Mark Urban reports.
