The wife and children of Islamist cleric Abu Qatada, who faces trial on terror charges in Jordan following his deportation from Britain, are planning to move to Amman from London, a family friend said on Tuesday.
"Abu Qatada's wife and five children want to leave Britain and come to Jordan. They are currently preparing for that," the family friend told AFP, asking not to be named.
Military prosecutors on Sunday charged Abu Qatada, 53, with "conspiracy to carry out terrorist acts," just hours after his deportation from Britain. He pleaded not guilty to the charges.
