More jihad purging: Abu Qatada deported from UK to stand trial in Jordan
Radical cleric Abu Qatada is being held in a high security jail near the Jordanian capital Amman, after being deported from the UK.
His plane left RAF Northolt at 02:46 BST for his home country, where he appeared in court to be charged with terror offences, which he denies.
Prime Minister David Cameron said he was "delighted" at his removal.
Abu Qatada was first arrested in the UK over alleged terror connections in 2001 and has fought deportation since 2005.
The Palestinian-Jordanian cleric's deportation was finally able to proceed after the UK and Jordan signed a treaty agreeing that evidence obtained through torture would not be used against him.
