Abu Qatada will be deported to Jordan

The radical cleric Abu Qatada can be deported to Jordan, after the British Government obtained assurances that he'll get a fair trial there.

Home Secretary Theresa May also admitted that it may take "many months", as his lawyers could appeal up to the European Court of Human Rights.

Qatada was once described by a judge as Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe - he was seized today at his home in the capital by officers from the UK Border Agency.
