Abu Qatada Appeal Rejected

Radical cleric Abu Qatada's request for a deportation appeal hearing to the grand chamber of the European Court has been rejected, according to Sky sources.

The British government is seeking to deport Qatada from London to Jordan, where he is wanted on terror charges.

Qatada launched the appeal attempt at the European Court of Human Rights on April 17, saying he faced the risk of tortue in Jordan.
