European Court to decide on Abu Qatada deportation referral

A decision on the extradition of the radical Muslim cleric Abu Qatada will move a step closer today.

A panel of judges at the European Court of Human Rights will decide whether to refer his case to the Court's Grand Chamber.

Qatada's lawyers say he would be at risk of torture if he was sent back to Jordan.
