Radical Muslim Cleric Wins British Deportation Appeal

UK wants to send him to Jordan to face terrorism charges


An immigration appeals tribunal ruled Monday that sending a militant Islamic preacher known as Abu Qatada to Jordan to face terrorism charges would violate his right to a fair trial under European human rights law.
