Britain to Free Jailed Muslim Cleric

A British court on Monday granted bail to jailed radical Muslim cleric Abu Qatada after determining that he may not face a fair trial in Jordan, where he is wanted on terrorism charges. Britain’s Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said on Tuesday that the government is “absolutely determined” to deport Qatada. “He should not be in this country; he is a dangerous person,” Clegg told ITV’s Daybreak. Qatada, whose real name is Omar Othman, has been in British prison for seven years but has never been charged with a crime there.
