Qatada Won’t Be Deported From U.K.

Abu Qatada’s European vacation goes on, much to the chagrin of the British government. The radical Islamic preacher—who’s been convicted of terrorist bomb plots in Jordan—has been on British soil for years. The Special Immigration Appeals Commission ruled against deportation because it wasn’t convinced by the British government that evidence obtained through torture would not be used in the trial. Kept in prison since 2011, Abu Qatada has been referred to as a senior al Qaeda official.
