British PM "frustrated" as Qatada is released on bail

A terrorism suspect in Britain has been released back into the community on bail, after the country’s courts ruled he should not be extradited to Jordan.

Abu Qatada has been dubbed as Osama Bin Laden’s right hand man and has been fighting not to be extradited to Jordan for his involvement in terrorist attacks in 1998.

The government has been fighting for 7 years to deport him, but senior judges have ruled he should not be extradited because evidence against him may have been obtained by torture.

Overnight British Prime Minister David Cameron has expressed his frustration over the ruling, saying he is a threat to society.
