THE SAUDI lawyer representing the two freed British nurses said yesterday that he was planning to bring a pounds 1m lawsuit against Frank Gilford, brother of the Australian woman they were alleged to have killed.

Salah al-Hejailan said the "mental torture" that Mr Gilford had inflicted on Deborah Parry and Lucille McLauchlan in demanding blood money after the death of his sister Yvonne amounted to "blackmail". He said he had written to McLauchlan and Parry asking them to back his claim, which is scheduled to be heard in an Australian court on 17 June.
