Abu Qatada 'may leave UK in a week', says friend

A friend of Abu Qatada's family has told the BBC they believe Britain will return him to Jordan within the next seven days.

Home Office minister James Brokenshire is in Jordan for talks about Abu Qatada, whom the UK wants to deport.

Speaking to the BBC's Kevin Connolly, journalist Marwan Shehada said Abu Qatada had asked the British government to request a guarantee from the King of Jordan that he would be given a fair trial.
