Lawyer sues US over false arrest

A US lawyer wrongfully arrested over the Madrid train bombings in 2004 is suing the US government. Brandon Mayfield, 38, was held for two weeks when the FBI linked him to fingerprints found in Spain – but later said it was wrong and apologised. Mr Mayfield, a convert to Islam, says he was targeted because he is a Muslim.
