Payout to Islamist Qatada to 'horrify reasonable people'

It is being claimed that a €2,800 payout to Islamist, Abu Qatada, will "horrify reasonable people".

The British Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling has hit out after an EU court ruled in favour of the radical preacher.

Judges decided Qatada's detention in the UK under anti-terrorism measures breached his human rights.

The radical Osama bin Laden-linked cleric was held after the 9-11 terror attacks.

The award comes a day after Qatada was ordered to return to Jordan to face terrorism charges.
