REUTERS/Ismail Zitouny/File Photo By Michael Holden | LONDON LONDON A former Libyan Islamist commander, who says he suffered years of torture by Muammar Gaddafi's henchmen after British and U.S. spies handed him over to Libya, was given permission on Tuesday to sue the British government and its former foreign secretary. Abdel Hakim Belhadj, a rebel leader who helped topple Gaddafi in 2011 and is now a politician, says he and his pregnant wife Fatima were abducted by U.S. CIA agents in Thailand in 2004 and then illegally transferred to Tripoli with the help of British spies. Britain's Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed an appeal by the government to stop him taking legal action, paving the way for Belhadj and his wife to seek damages against former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, the domestic and foreign spy agencies MI5 and MI6, a senior former intelligence chief and relevant government departments. However, Belhadj has said he would drop the case if he was given a token payment of 1 pound ($1.21) and an apology from all the parties involved. "We hope that the defendants in this actionnow see fit to apologize to our clients and acknowledge the wrongs done, sothat they may turn the page on this wretched chapter of their lives and moveon," said lawyer Sapna Malik from Leigh Day, the London law firm representing Belhadj. Belhadj says he was originally detained in China, before being transferred to Malaysia and then moved to a CIA "black site" in Thailand. He was handed over to CIA agents, acting on a tip-off from MI6, and flown via the British island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean to Tripoli, because at the time Britain and the United States were keen to build relations with Gaddafi. As a long-standing enemy of the former Libyan leader, he was imprisoned and tortured until his release in 2010 while his wife was also mistreated during her four-month incarceration.

St. Louis Blues at Staples Center. Exploit Jake Allen The 17-10-3 record that Allen boasts is impressive, but his other stats dont quite measure up. His .902 save percentage ranks just 38th among qualified goaltenders, and his GAA of 2.70 ranks just 29th. The Blues win games through offensive production. St. Louis doesnt give up many shots per game, ranking 5th fewest in the NHL with 27.9 shots on goal per game given up. However, they also give up the 7th most goals per game at a 2.98 total.
