Radical cleric Abu Qatada will launch another bid for freedom at a court in Jordan after he was finally deported from Britain on Sunday.
Qatada's lawyer told reporters the terror suspect would apply for bail after he was charged with plotting al-Qaida inspired terror attacks and detained in a prison in Jordan's capital, Amman.
The father-of-five found himself back in the Middle East after a near decade-long battle to boot him out of the UK.
