A missing terror suspect who fled in a burka has won a significant Court of Appeal battle over the use of secret evidence in anti-terrorism cases.

Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, 27, who gained his legal victory with the assistance of legal aid, is said to have received al Qaida-linked terrorist training in 2008.

His whereabouts are currently unknown after he left a mosque in Acton, west London, disguised as a woman in a burqa last November.

Three Court of Appeal judges allowed his appeal and that of another terrorist suspect, referred to as "CF", against an Administrative Court decision upholding the Home Secretary's decision to impose anti-terror restrictions on the basis of secret evidence.
