The lawyer for a group of Pakistani men who say they were kidnapped and tortured by Greek and British agents after the July bomb attacks in London have filed suit against the alleged intelligence officers.

The lawyer, Frangiskos Ragoussis, representing at least 27 men who say they were taken from homes in Greece says the suit is against agents identified in a recent story published by an Athens newspaper.

The governments of Greece, Britain and Pakistan have denied the allegations, but Greek lawmakers have called for an investigation.
