Abu Qatada to be released from prison

Muslim cleric Abu Qatada is due to be released on bail after winning the latest stage in his seven-year legal battle to avoid deportation to Jordan, where he faces terrorism charges.

He will be released from Long Lartin prison, in Worcestershire, on Tuesday.

Abu Qatada's lawyers told the Special Immigration Appeals Commission he would not get a fair trial in Jordan, where he is accused of bomb plots.
