#1 Abu Qatada's release 'imminent'06-17-2008, 12:02 PM
The radical Islamist preacher Abu Qatada is to be released on bail within 24 hours, officials say.
A senior judge has signed papers authorising the release of Qatada, previously described as Osama Bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe.
The preacher will be subjected to a 22-hour home curfew and other restrictions on his liberty.
The government is currently appealing against a court decision to block his deportation to Jordan.
