Radical cleric Abu Qatada released on bail

(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Radical Muslim cleric Abu Qatada was released on bail from a UK prison on Tuesday (November 13) after winning an appeal against deportation from Britain to face charges in Jordan. The ruling on Monday (November 12) for Qatada to be released under bail conditions, including a 16-hour curfew at his London home, was a blow to the Conservative-led government that says he is a huge security risk. The special court that deals with security cases, and that handed down the decision, said British Interior Minister Theresa May had been wrong not to revoke an earlier deportation ruling against Qatada, and allowed his appeal. A Jordanian of Palestinian origin, described by a Spanish judge as "Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe", he has been a thorn in the side of successive British governments. Qatada has been in and out of jail in Britain for seven years without charge since his arrest in 2002.
