Extraordinarily dangerous' radical Muslim cleric Abu Qatada will be freed within days after judge grants him bail

Hate preacher Abu Qatada will be released from jail within days after a judge today granted him bail.
Despite claims the radical Muslim cleric still poses a risk to national security, Mr Justice Mitting ruled today at a hearing of the Special Immigration Appeals Commission that he can be freed. He is expected to be released next week.
Qatada, 51, once described as 'Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe', is free to continue fighting his deportation to Jordan - where he's wanted on suspicion of a Millennium bomb plot.
Speaking after today's ruling, a Home Office spokesman said the Government 'disagreed with the court's decision'.
He said: 'Qatada should remain in detention, our view has not changed. This is a dangerous man who we believe poses a real threat to our security and who has not changed in his views or attitude to the UK.'
