Police explain reason for Abu Qatada re-arrest

The recent re-arrest of radical cleric Abu Qatada was linked to an investigation into extremist internet material, the Met Police have said.

They are investigating whether he was involved in the material's publication.

The cleric was arrested by UK Border Agency officials and returned to prison after a Met Police counter-terrorism unit searched his London home on 9 March.

June Kelly reports.
