Immigration judge says Qatada evidence is "thin"

Some of the evidence put forward against terror suspect Abu Qatada in Jordan has been described as "extremely thin" by senior immigration judge , Mr Justice Mitting.

He is the president of the Special Immigration Appeals Commission, which is considering Mr Qatada's appeal against extradition to Jordan.

The Appeals Commission will test whether sufficient assurances have been received from Jordan to ensure he gets a fair trial - rather than the strength of the case against him.
