LONDON (Reuters) - Radical Muslim cleric Abu Qatada will be deported by Britain to Jordan on Sunday, ending eight years of government efforts to send him home for trial, British papers reported on Saturday.
Abu Qatada, wanted in Jordan on charges of alleged terrorism, will be put on a special flight at around 0100 GMT (9:00 P.M. EDT), the Times newspaper said. Observers from a Jordanian human rights organization would accompany him, the Telegraph said.
A spokeswoman for the Home Office declined to comment on the reports.
