BRITAIN TODAY: Qatada to be freed; BAIL RULING.

THE firebrand preacher once described as "Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe" will be freed on bail in the next 24 hours, it was confirmed yesterday.

Abu Qatada won his fight against deportation from Britain in April.

Home Office Minister Tony McNulty pledged at the time that Qatada would not be released, and said ministers would appeal against the ruling. Qatada will be required to wear an electronic tag and remain in his home for 22 hours a day.
