LONDON (Reuters) - The British newspaper The Guardian published a story on Tuesday about recent documents showing how British intelligence cooperated with former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi and the role played by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
The documents show that the head of foreign intelligence (MI6) Sir Richard Derloff flew to Tripoli in 2004 to discuss how to launch a joint campaign against exiled Libyan jihadists who were branded as "heretics" by Gaddafi regime officials.
The documents - described as "secret" - show for the first time Gaddafi's correspondence to Blair in 2003, listing five demands he made in return for Libya's abandonment of its nuclear weapons program.
Blair has played a prominent role in organizing this relationship, noting that other documents confirm the cooperation of the British intelligence services with the Gaddafi regime in the kidnapping of members of the group of Islamic fighters in Libya and forcibly handed over to the Gaddafi regime, where they were returned to prisons in Tripoli.
