European court backs CIA rendition victim
The European Court of Human Rights has ruled in favour of a German citizen, after finding he was an innocent victim of extraordinary rendition by the CIA. Macedonia was ordered to pay Khaled el-Masri $78,000 on Thursday for arresting him and handing him over to the US in December 2003. El-Masri spent five months in secret CIA jails for suspected links to armed Islamist groups. Al Jazeera's Nick Spicer reports from Berlin.
