Smiling terror suspect Abu Qatada has arrived at his home following his release from prison - and was greeted by protesters chanting "out, out, out".
The radical cleric appeared to smile as he was driven away from maximum security prison HMP Long Lartin in Worcestershire after winning the latest round in his battle against extradition.
Heavily-bearded Qatada, once described as Osama bin Laden's right-hand man in Europe, later arrived home in London, where the group of protesters also help up a banner which read: "Get rid of Abu Qatada" and shouted "Get him out!" as he walked into his house flanked by officials.
Qatada, who is said to be planning to move house, made no comment but smiled as he arrived. He will be subject to a 16-hour curfew and allowed out between 8am and 4pm. Other conditions include wearing an electronic tag, not using the internet and not contacting certain people.
His release comes after judges approved his appeal against deportation to Jordan to stand trial. The Special Immigration Appeals Commission (Siac) said that despite assurances from the Arab kingdom, it could not be sure evidence from witnesses who had been tortured would not be included in a retrial in his homeland. The cleric was convicted of terror charges in Jordan in his absence in 1999.
Home Secretary Theresa May, who travelled to Jordan earlier this year in a bid to pave the way for Qatada's deportation, has vowed that the Government will continue to fight to "get rid" of him and told MPs on Monday that the Home Office will appeal against the Siac's decision.
Mrs May described a European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruling, which prevented Qatada's deportation earlier this year, as "deeply unsatisfactory" and accused the Strasbourg court of "moving the goalposts" for governments trying to deport dangerous foreign nationals.
Prime Minister David Cameron's official spokesman said: "The Home Office will be ensuring that we take all the steps necessary to ensure that Qatada does not present a risk to national security."
The Government believes the tribunal ruling was based on the application of the wrong legal test, the spokesman confirmed. He said the issue will be raised in future discussions with the Jordanian authorities. Jordanian government minister Nayef al-Fayez told the BBC they shared the British Government's disappointment, but respected the decision.
Qatada, who is said to have wide and high-level support among extremists, featured in hate sermons found on videos in the flat of one of the September 11 bombers. He has so far thwarted every attempt by the Government to deport him.
